Learn how to make the perfect book for your creative projects. Three different book structures will be covered that can be used for various artistic applications-photobook album, sewn-boards binding, and a watercolor or sketchbook. The photobook has special window cut-outs and spine to accommodate for the thickness of photographs or collage on the page. Sewn-boards binding is a conservation binding that lays completely flat, making it ideal for sketching of drawing, and scanning or photographing afterward. The third book is a watercolor or sketch pad with removable tear-off pages with a drop spine. Includes materials; see SSA website for a list of supplies.

A zine is a self-published, typically inexpensive booklet associated with DIY ethics, made to spread niche information. In this two-day workshop we will make several zine structure variations from readily available materials such as regular copy paper and cereal boxes. We will also discuss idea and content generations, such as creative writing exercises, resources for stock images or inspiration. The class will participate in a zine exchange with fellow students, each contributing and receiving a pack of zines. See SSA website for a list of materials and supplies. Registration closes Feb 14.
