Descriptions of our bookmaking classes and related workshops:


Bookbinding I
In this introductory course, participants will become familiar with the =
materials (paper, cloth, board and adhesives) and the methods (folding, =
sewing and gluing) of basic bookbinding techniques. Students will make =
pamphlet bindings, multi-section books, a simple enclosure, and books =
that become great journals, sketchbooks and albums.=20

Choose one of two sections offered:

Section I. Barbara Mauriello, instructor

$400 / CBA member $375

Bookbinding II

This class is designed for those who have completed Bookbinding I and =
want more bookbinding experience that does not emphasize re-binding and =
restoration. The goal of this class is to provide students with enhanced =
skills and greater confidence in basic bookbinding. Through =
demonstrations and the production of several different book and box =
structures, students will learn to choose the appropriate book structure =
to specific projects.  The class will also explore re-interpretations of =
historical structures for contemporary needs. There will be time =
allotted to discuss individual projects and ideas.=20

Prerequisite: Bookbinding I or equivalent.

 Judy Ivry, instructor

Monday nights, 10 sessions, September 27 through November 29; 6 to 9 pm. =

$375 / CBA members $350
Bookbinding III
In this advanced course, participants with a solid background in case =
binding techniques will learn leather bookbinding. Each student will =
make two books bound in leather. Topics to be covered: types and supply =
sources for leather; edge tool sharpening; sewing structures on cords =
and tapes; leather paring by hand, spokeshave and machine; handsewing a =
two-color silk endband; edge decoration; endsheet/doublure construction; =
and blind tooling. Students must supply leather, decorative paper, a =
paring knife and spokeshave. Call for more information about these =
materials and supplies.=20
Pre-requisite: Bookbinding II or equilvalent.

books. This course will focus upon the practice of re-backing cloth =
volumes, paper repair, re-sewing of loose sections and dry cleaning. The =
treatment of spines and endpapers will also be discussed if such =
problems are presented in the class. Participants should bring at least =
two cloth covered books to the first session-one with the spine of the =
case loose or split, and one with the endpaper joints split and/or =

Pre-requisite: Bookbinding I and the ability to make a case with =

Radical Bookworks: From Meaning to Structure
This class is designed to challenge common assumptions about traditional =
book formats and to offer participants an opportunity to make their own =
artist books and bookworks that incorporate collage, painting, =
photography, mixed-media, and writing. By exploring a variety of =
alternative structures, sequential relationships and the physical =
properties of a book, students will create both paginated works that =
include imagery and text, as well as sculptural objects which involve =
the book as a metaphor. A primary focus of the course will be how a book =
can function as a sequence of ideas and how works can employ found and =
unusual materials in three-dimensional book objects. Each week students =
will work on a number of individual assignments in and outside of class =
and the sessions will begin with a discussion and group critique of =
students' bookworks. There will also be a number of slide presentations. =
This is not a class that teaches craft techniques, but rather, ideas =
related to the book as contemporary art.=20

Previous bookbinding experience is helpful but not required.
