Fall 2013 Workshops
Fall is here! The leaves will soon be turning and the temperatures are cooling down. It’s time to come inside—and what better place to be than the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center?
Our Fall 2013 Workshops are now open for enrollment, including Beginning Bookbinding and Foil Stamping taught by Jeff Abshear & Mark Lambert, Saturday Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday Nov. 24, noon to 3 p.m. In this two-day class we will make a hardcover book and then decorate it with foil stamping. On Saturday learn to bind a book by hand using traditional materials and book cloth. Come back on Sunday use foil stamping machines to decorate the cover of your book. Instruction will be given in stamping on different materials including paper and leather.
