This 1.5 hour workshop will begin by briefly showing an example zine and chapbooks to demonstrate the techniques that will be taught and help students to get a feel for the various aesthetics. We will focus on bookmaking that doesn’t require glue. The students will learn about bookmaking tools, basic practices and three techniques to create their own chapbooks and zines.
We’ll cover the following non-glue book techniques: Stab and Stitch binding/Japanese binding, poster fold books (basic accordion book), and Saddle Stitch binding (typically used for chapbooks and zines).
