Handmade papermaking and book binding workshop series

We have an incredible workshop series starting in April with Kimberley Wood and Mr. Paper of Papel a Mano. This series is 3 separate workshops where you will learn how to make your own paper, decorate it with the marbling technique, different book binding techniques as well as how to make different kinds of books such as flag books and accordion books. You can sign up for each class separately, but if you sign up for all 3, you will receive a 10% discount off the total price. What a deal.

In this 3-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to take page design to a new level! On the first day of the workshop, you will go to Papel a Mano’s studio and explore various decorating techniques for pages to be included in one of two types of flag books. You will embed objects (string, yarn, cut out shapes, etc.) between two thin sheets of paper and design the size and shape of the pages depending upon which of two very distinct types of flag book you wish to make. On days 2 & 3, you will come to idiomART to construct your flag book(s) using the pages that you designed on day 1. We will supply a number of decorative items for you to use to design you book.
