This workshop focuses on the timeless craft of bookbinding and paper marbling. Learn how to create interesting and unpredictable patterns on paper, several binding styles, and basic skills in paper and book arts. Discover opportunities for experimentation within each process.

This workshop begins with a day spent marbling a variety of papers that are used to make five different book structures. The remaining three days explore saddle stitch, Japanese stab, coptic, case bound, and secret Belgium binding structures. Use a variety of materials and techniques to put a twist on these standard book structures. Finally, design and construct a slip case that holds all five book structures and a mini sampler of traditional paper marbling patterns. Leave this workshop with a beautiful bookbinding reference box for your library. Open to all levels.
