Literally Letters III – Book and Boxes: The Natural Fit – G18063

Workshop ID: G18063
Dates: June 3 - June 9
Price: $650.00 - $1,550.00

Books and boxes are a natural fit, as they are structurally integrated. In this workshop, you will learn the structure of books, create the inside pages for your book, and sew it together using the Coptic binding. This book structure lays flat, making it perfect for journaling, writing, sketching, calligraphy practice, mementos and more. Additionally, the boxes and book covers will be decorated with your own designs, utilizing inks, paints and a variety of other mediums. Each set will be unique to the artist. Other topics will include tips for various bindings, and how to choose appropriate materials. You will leave Ghost Ranch with the skill set to make additional unique handmade books and boxes in the future. No prior experience is necessary.
