Looking for a book-related activity this summer? Creative Commons YXE, 312 Ave B South, Saskatoon, SK, Canada may have what you want.
Do you want to get things together in book form? Or make yourself a custom notebook? Have you ever wondered just how a book is made? In this workshop you will learn the basics of hand binding. We will cover hand tools, materials and adhesives. We will make paperback and hardcover books, glued and sewn books, single sheet and ‘signature’ books and even an accordion. We will work with both historical and contemporary structures and materials. Everyone with an interest in books is welcome.
All materials and the use of tools are included.
