Print, Paper & Book




Boro-Inspired Paper
Boro is a Japanese term meaning something tattered or repaired, and often refers to indigo typed work clothes. Using assorted papers, we will fold, pleat, wax, press, dye (with indigo, black walnut, and pigments), flatten, deconstruct, reconstruct, make marks and stitch, finishing with an unexpected quilt-like work of art layered with complexity. All materials provided.

Hand-Stitched Boxes
Use handmade paper to create a paper box! Students will learn to design and create a pattern for their box, explore different ways to construct the box as well as how to embellish with stitching and collage. The box that students walk away with will not only be a work of art but also sturdy and functional! All materials provided, but students are encouraged to bring embellishments, such as beads, buttons, decorative papers and/or paper ephemera.

Miniature Book Christmas Ornaments

Create a collection of miniature handmade books that can be turned into eye-catching Christmas ornaments. We’ll make three types of books that can decorate your tree, all while learning the basics of bookbinding. One ornament will be a leather-bound book with blank pages, perfect for writing holiday memories inside. The second book will be bound in a lotus style that can hang on your tree in two different shapes: either opened into a three-dimensional star, or folded into a neat diamond. The third ornament will be an accordion book that looks like a festive star or snowflake. Not only will you leave with three handbound ornament books, but also the skills to create more books in the future. No previous bookbinding experience required. All materials provided.

Western Paper Marbling
In this introductory workshop, students will gain a basic understanding of the history, techniques, tools, and styles of European paper marbling. Students will experiment with free-form swirled patterns, and learn to create intricate classical patterns using combs and rakes to manipulate the pigments in a carrageenan bath. The patterns will then be transferred to paper, creating one-of-a-kind decorative sheets. Students will have plenty of time for experimentation, and they’ll leave with a collection of their own marbled papers, which can be using for bookbinding projects or displayed as works of art. All materials provided.
