Description:

DAY ONE

Hand Lettering

Hand Lettering (also known as faux-calligraphy), seems to be popping up everywhere these days. From hand-lettered chalkboards, to wedding invitations, to everyday Instagram accounts, we can't seem to get away from the hand-writing envy. This class will introduce you to the concept of hand lettering, how to get started, and how an everyday practice can actually be empowering and meditative.

Concepts Covered

- History of hand-lettering

- Basic technique for 3 styles of hand-lettering

- Embellishments

- Hand-lettering as a relaxation tool

- Hand lettering in practice: Card-making


Paper- Making

Paper Making was first created in China during the Eastern Han period (25-220 CE), and has continued to be an art-form on both the manufactured and handmade scales. This class will introduce you to the basics of recycled paper making, and how handmade paper can bring your projects to the next level.

Concepts Covered

- The history of paper-making

- Basic paper pulping with recycled paper

- Natural embellishments and colors

Please bring any materials or colors you would like to use for this class (i.e. flowers, coffee grounds, natural dyes). You will have the option to use this paper later in the weekend for the Japanese bookbinding class.


DAY TWO

Saddle Stitch Bookbinding

The Saddle-stitch binding class is designed to get you warmed up for Day Two, and practicing basic bookbinding techniques. We will be making small flipbooks, which are perfect for grocery and to-do lists

Japanese Bookbinding

The yamato-toji technique of bookbinding dates back to the late Heian period (794-1185) in Japan. Each page is folded, grouped into chapters or “signatures”, and sewn together to create beautiful and sturdy journals and sketchbooks.


Concepts Covered

- History of Japanese bookbinding

- Proper folding techniques

- yamato-toji binding technique
