Prerequisite: previous bookbinding experience. Build upon bookbinding basics and try your hand at more advanced techniques. First, create a pocket book and then move on to altered books. With the altered book, we take a pre-existing book and transform it somehow. This could be through manipulating the pages with creative writing and drawing or pop-up creations or decorating an old cover in a unique way. Lastly, we will work on found-object and sculptural books. This final project is the student's chance to design their own book and combine various techniques for an original piece of artwork. Suggested supply list sent upon registration.
