This course will introduce you to several book binding techniques and will include Coptic, Accordion, Japanese stab, clam-shell boxes, portfolio folders, as well as several variations of those bindings.
You need no prior knowledge of bookbinding as it is intended to be a beginner’s level class.
To practise binding taught in this class you will need copy paper, tread, needles, an awl (or thick sharp needle), paper clips, bone folder, ruler, pencils, paper glue, paper knife or box cutter.

The class will give you a thorough introduction to the different book-binding techniques, and Travis will spend time demonstrating live in class the specific bindings.
We will also include a troubleshooting section where you can present issues you have encountered when trying out the different techniques presented in class. Each class will also involve presentation of handmade books created by other artists as inspiration.
The online course will give you a feel for the different bindings and techniques so you can get an idea for which fits your photography best, and be a great preparation course to take before enrolling in our In-person workshop The Artist Book which takes place 23-29 Januar 2023. You will leave the online class with the knowledge of 4–6 different binding techniques.
