Hand Bookbinding

Hand Bookbinding In-Person

Hand Bookbinding: We’re going to sew pages and glue a book together in this class.. Students will produce at one finished book. We will learn how to fold signatures, use an awl to punch holes and stitch together our pages. Students will choose paper for the end pages and glue them onto the front and back of the signatures. After gluing the binding we will cut the page edges cleanly. Paper backed cloth will be glued onto cardboard for the covers; the signatures will be correctly placed inside and glued in. Voila! Your own book!

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of The Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts.
