Simple Book Binding Class at Kala, Berkeley

Join us at Kala for this wonderful 4 week book-binding and printmaking course at Kala Art Institute, Thursdays April 11th – May 2nd 6:30-8:30pm!

Description

SIMPLE BOOKBINDING WITH HAND PRINTED COVERS – PLEASE REGISTER VIA KALA USING LINK BELOW

In this workshop we will explore how to create a simple codex binding out of paper, found objects, and a variety of printmaking techniques to adorn our covers and pages. Participants will be led through a series of step-by-step instructions on how to create the book and binding. They will also learn how to use Gel Plates, stencils, and hand carved stamps to create beautiful printed papers that will be used for the cover, clasp, and decorative elements inside its pages. Once the book is finished, it can be used as a writing, art journal, or stand alone as a sculptural book art piece. (Time permitting, we will also touch on accordion style books!) No experience necessary with bookmaking or printmaking – all are welcome!
