Book Arts

Book Arts

Ages 18+

Learn the art of handmade books with projects ranging from traditional to experimental: Japanese stab binding, accordion books, collaged tunnel books, manipulated found books, and even book sculptures. Dig into the history of artists’ books to find inspiration. Bring your own quotes, short poems, or images and craft multiple books as you delve into the joy that is book arts. We will additionally take a tour of the work of artist Alison Saar, whose exhibition Of Aether and Earthe is currently on view at the Armory, and draw inspiration from her art as we create our own unique pieces.

Material list provided on the first day of the session. Masks are required inside the Armory for all students and visitors. With few exceptions, students age 12 and up must show proof of full vaccination on the first day of class. Please read our onsite class safety protocols here.
