Bookmaking with Amanda Chestnut

$55/45 mbrs. (discounted price will display for members upon login)

Books are my first artistic love. I’ve been making them since before I could write. In an introductory workshop, students could learn several basic stitches. The two rules I teach students about making books is to mind the grain of the paper and to always have clean hands. After that, it’s all fun and flexible. I always start with a pamphlet stitch: it’s a great warm-up for people who’ve made books and a good introduction for those who haven’t. – Amanda Chestnut

Students will learn basic stitching techniques, creating 2-3 books
