Come learn how to make several different types of folded books, all from one sheet of paper--starting with the fabulous and incredibly flexible Accordion. We will start simple, and then get more complicated, working our way up to one of Hedi Kyle's structures called the Blizzard book. We'll talk about how to use some of these as building blocks for other work, and how to incorporate content in a myriad of ways.
My favorite binding, the coptic stitch is an exposed-spine sewing (meaning the stitch is visible, and doesn't get covered up), and allows the book to open absolutely flat. This binding lends itself to journals and books of all kinds, and can also be very sculptural--anything can be used as covers, as long as you can drill a hole through it. We'll make a chunky blank book from start to finish, and if we have time, we'll make a miniature one as well. Get ready to sew!
