Books and Paper Fall Concentration

BOOKS AND PAPER FALL CONCENTRATION
October 2 – November 11, 2022
Cathy Adelman and Alice Vaughan
Books and Boxes: Divine and Sublime

This workshop will cover a broad range of traditional and modern techniques for making well-crafted, thoughtfully designed fine bindings and boxes. Through daily demonstrations and hands-on instruction, students will learn to make case bindings (both flexible and hard), slipcases, and portfolios using the primary materials of leather, paper, and book cloth. We’ll embellish our work using finishing techniques such as leather tooling, inlay, and gilding.  Two instructors with complementary and wide-ranging experience will present students with plenty of information and alternate approaches. All levels.
