book arts 18+
instructed by molly nelko

Book design is something that is largely forgotten today, it is a craft often taken for granted. It involves methods and rules that have been developed over centuries.

This class consists of a series of four classes in April, each building on the last. We will work on exercises and follow steps to make our own handmade book.

This course is designed for beginners. Your registration covers all four sessions. Come explore all this wonderful craft has to offer.


This class is $50 a person, all supplies are included.


This class is limited to participants 18 & up.

There is a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 10. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.


This class will be located in the newly available Studio 2 which is located behind Rusty the big red dog on our campus. Look for the blue double doors in the Courtyard of Wonders!
