Recently I attended a bookbinding workshop at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative.
It was an ambitious class, with a few too many projects for the 6 hours allotted, but I had a blast learning and surveying all the techniques.
We made a mini â€˜origamiâ€™ book that can house strips of fortune cookie fortunes.
It makes an adorable necklace too.
This book is made of one sheet of letter-sized paper folded into the pink cover without any adhesives.
Next up was an accordion book.
Basic book-sewing skills created a small journal.
The challenging binding project became my homework.
I look forward to completing this book when I have a weekend without other workshops to attend.
