In this class join Stacey Stern of Steracle Press, and Jennifer Hunt
Johnson of Red Letter Bindery, in taking your manifesto from concept,
to print, to book. This ten-week class for beginners will walk you
through the entire bookmaking process. You will start with concept and
design, and learn techniques for page layout and planning your
project. Stacey will then show you how to mix inks, register and print
your own pages with flair. Then join Jen in the bindery to learn the
basics of working with paper and adhesives, folding, and simple sewing
techniques to complete a unique binding for your beautifully printed
sheets. You will experience accordion binding, stab binding, and
pamphlet stitch, and will apply your favorite techniques to create
your finished book.
