Calling all book enthusiasts! Master the fine art of bookbinding from artist Hazel Mandujano, an LA-based graphic designer and seasoned lecturer at the Otis College of Art and Design. Hazel will teach participants how to make 2 non-adhesive bookbinding styles, including the classic Coptic Stitch Bind and the Explosion Fold. You’ll walk away with a comprehensive study of folding and sewing techniques, and working knowledge of best practices. As a part of this workshop, you’ll also receive a take-home kit – awl, paper, archival linen thread, binding needle, and bone folder; and the skills of a book artist to handcraft your own book, source materials, and build your next portfolio, or create a photo album to cherish for years to come.
All materials are included in the workshop and light snacks and refreshments will be served. Interested in having your kids join the class? Read our Workshops FAQ
"I really liked the small class size which allowed for Hazel to work with us one-on-one. I also appreciated that the class was long enough to learn and try new things out without feeling too pressed for time."
