Miniature books are always admired and loved. In this class you will learn how to scale things down and produce a selection of beautiful miniature books that will be fully functioning and useable. You will make a long stitched leather bound book as well as some different hardbound and folded book structures. These will make ideal gifts, keepsakes, necklaces or even Christmas tree decorations.
All materials required will be provided.
Learn how to make the Elbum, designed by Ben Elbel, a fun and clever album structure which holds its pages by gripping them into a series of articulated narrow pockets. This is a treasure of paper engineering, this project is also a great introduction to concertina folding by hand as it requires precision folding. There will be an opportunity to practice with making a prototype before moving onto your finished Elbum. This is ideal if you are looking for a book structure that will hold individual pages. This class is suitable for beginners as well as those with some bookbinding experience.
