Basic Bookmaking

with Debra Bickford


Class is full

Bookmaking has a long, rich history. Artists all over the globe have embraced this method of expression and pushed the boundaries of what “making a book’ means. Handmade books are a fun and satisfying functional art form. The methods of bookmaking are endless, and once you try one, you will want to learn more! Giving a handmade book as a gift is a very special keepsake indeed. Especially if you fill it with your own artwork! Beginner to advanced students welcome. Supply list available at the adult ed office.
