NEW Bookbinding Workshop: Accordion Book

from 135.00

This book makes a lovely journal. It’s also an excellent photo album and a brilliant swatchkeeper.

Instructor: Bari Zaki

Class Size: 7 students. Currently offered as a private or semiprivate class. Add to Cart & email bz@barizaki.com to request a date & time.)

We begin, as always in our bookbinding classes, by getting acquainted with paper grain and its importance for the finished book. After an overview of the bookbinding tools you will use, we will fold cover-weight drawing paper into accordion-style folios to create your book-block. We use several ways of creating an accordion-style fold & we’ll demonstrate them for you.

You will create your cover by following several paper-folding steps. The cover and all the folios magically connect together without any glue. Happiness ensues.

We will make three books in this class with different color covers. You can also make the cover with drawing paper and decorate it with your own doodles or watercolors.

Class fee includes all materials we use to make three accordion books: Decorative cover paper, drawing paper, bone folder, triangle ruler, scissors, happiness, tea.

Our studio is light-filled, airy, and organized. You are welcome to browse our extensive library of books about bookbinding, calligraphy, and drawing. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & books with you in this three hour workshop!
