Here's what the class is all about...
In this two-day workshop we’ll make a number of simple book structures and create unique books suitable for artistic expression. Binding methods will be shown and we’ll produce a few books in the western and Asian traditions. An additional $25 materials fee will be charged to be paid to the instructor.
