Bookmaking Workshop: Hardcover Book

$200 for tour, lesson, and materials for 35 books

Dive into the world of book arts with a virtual tour of MCBA’s studios, a video lesson on book arts and the parts of a book, and a video workshop on how to make a hardcover book! 

This book project involves both sewn and tape binding, and the final product can be used as a hardcover journal or sketchbook perfect for class notes, stories, and more. You can pick up a class set of bookmaking materials in advance of viewing the workshop. In addition to the included materials, each participant will need to have on hand: 2a pencils, a glue stick, 4 paper clips, a thumbtack, an embroidery needle, a bone folder or bone folder alternative (a ruler, spoon, popsicle stick, etc.), waste sheets (like old magazine pages or scrap paper), and a kitchen sponge (optional). These tools can be included for an additional $15/participant, but have been excluded here to keep the base price of the workshop lower. *This project is perfect for Girl Scouts completing the Cadette Book Artist Badge!

This virtual workshop is recommended for grades 5–12. To bring this program to your community, please fill out this form.
