In this workshop, librarians will be introduced to creative and innovative book structures using that most wondrous of humble materials, paper, and basic tools. Inspired by innovators in the book arts field such as Claire van Vliet and Hedi Kyle, the focus will be on form and structure rather than content. Each student will produce a collection of sample books that can be used as reference and inspiration for further projects. The structures we will explore include the Blizzard/Crown Book, Reverse Hinge Binding, Woven Accordion and, time allowing, variations on the Turkish Map Fold. Pre-cut materials and tools will be provided by the instructor. No previous experience required.

Maximum Participants: 12
Fee: $60
