Learn the basics of bookbinding with mixed-media artist Sarah Gingras in this 2-session overview. During session 1, we will cover the tools and materials involved in the bookbinding process, and look at a selection of different artist book styles. Simple no-sew book structures will be covered, followed by the creation of a softcover travel journal using upcycled book cloth. Session 2 will cover the process of making a hardcover book for sketching or journaling.

About the Instructor: Sarah Gingras is a visual artist and freelance designer based in Peterborough, NH. She studied bookbinding at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and currently works as the Education Director at MAxT.
