Free Bookmaking Workshop
Saturday, Oct. 7, noon-3pm 


In collaboration with Hand Bookbinders of California (HBC), we are pleased to announce a free workshop on Saturday, October 7 at our Minnesota Street Project space, noon to 3pm for students 11 to 17.

We can only take 12 students and on a FEW SLOTS REMAIN. It's first-come, first-served. Call 415.551.7990 or email info@sfartsed.org with student/parent name and contact info.

Students will learn three book structures: Accordion, Pamphlet, and a Turkish Map Fold, and HBC will have three of their best instructors working with the students: Rhiannon Alpers, Bettina Pauly and Nina Zeininger. All three instructors teach at The Center for The Book and other institutions. Students are welcome to bring any of their own materials to color, paint or collage with their projects.

The Hand Bookbinders of California gathered for the first time in 1972. A close-knit group of hand bookbinders, with shared interests in creating and collecting fine bindings, joined together to promote hand bookbinding and related book arts and to exchange information and ideas. HBC membership now includes students, makers of artists' books, collectors, conservators, papermakers and paper decorators, fine printers, printmakers, writers, book dealers and other lovers of the book arts.
