Ever been curious about how to make a book? Introduction to Bookbinding is the place to start. This introductory course teaches basic structures and stitches that every book artist should know in order to create a multitude of books. You'll discuss the tools and materials for bookbinding and explore adhesives, paper types and uses, as well as grain for paper and book cloth. You'll learn a variety of structures—single-sheet book, accordion book, single-section pamphlet stitch, combined concertina, and Japanese stab—and make fun, simple books that can be turned into artists' books. The instructor will give a full overview of the SFCB Bookbinding Program and how (and why) to obtain the SFCB Bookbinding Certificate.
