Class with Kate Fernandez
Sunday, March 15 – Sunday, March 15, 2015
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Students produce one-of-a-kind artist books through a variety of book binding models, ranging from the single-sheet book, accordion fold, and single-section pamphlet stitch to more complicated bindings like Japanese stab, Coptic, and ultimately a cloth covered, casebound book. With each binding iteration, students learn the foundations of traditional bookmaking, discuss traditional materials for bookbinding, and explore adhesives, paper types and uses, as well as grain for paper and book cloth.
