Books are Portals

Books are portable, durable, and universal objects that travel with us through very public and historical realms as well as personal and intimate ones. As a widely accepted traditional form of reflection and information dissemination, what can we learn from making our own books today? This is a one-day intensive workshop focused on the book as a site for creative experimentation, self-determined archives, and personal narratives. Students will learn 3 basic bookbinding techniques and be able to bind their own blank sketchbooks and journals.
