Just like basic maintenance on your home does not require a contractor, basic maintenance for your personal library does not require a specialist!

In the first portion of this class, participants will receive a brief introduction to the terminology, beginner level tools, and techniques of bookmaking; as well as completing a small basic booklet in a hands-on work session. Your book will be 5″ x 7″ with blank pages and the cover can be blank, or if time allows, embellished.
The second portion of this workshop will take the previous techniques and use them to introduce basic maintenance and repair techniques for your books at home. Participants are encouraged to bring a book (paperback, hardcover, or both) of no sentimental or fiscal value to work on, thrift store finds are great for this. Personal books that you would like to show, discuss, or receive consultation on are also encouraged.
Supplies will include take home tool kit and literature for supplies and follow up research.
