North Bennet Street School's Workshop Program is proud to announce our first
Three Month Bookbinding Intensive. 


NEW! Three Month Bookbinding Intensive

Join us for the first-ever Three Month Bookbinding Intensive at North Bennet
Street School. This class is designed for those who want to receive a solid
foundation in bookbinding in a short time period. Participation in this
intensive will also help students to be more well prepared in anticipation
of attending our full-time Bookbinding program. 

This class is suitable for a true beginner, or the moderately experienced
binder who wishes to practice and hone skills. Topics covered in this class
are the same as the foundational content of two of our workshops,
Introduction to Non-Adhesive Bookbinding and Cloth Case Bookbinding.
Specific structures include: Coptic, historic longstitch, long stitch with
wrapper, crossed structure, flat back and rounded and backed cloth case,
full, half, and quarter cloth case, a cloth case production project, onset,
modified split, and simplified boards, basic enclosures, including four
flap, slipcase, and clamshell, case binding variants, including endpaper
attachment variations, headbands, album structures, foil stamping and more,
as time allows. Field trips and other topics will be part of the curriculum
depending on student interest. Please note: this is not a fine
binding/leather binding class. The tuition includes a materials fee for
paper and other basic supplies; students are expected to provide their own
special materials and hand tools. If you don't already own bookbinding
tools, expect to spend approximately $200 on tools for this course, in
addition to tuition. Additional materials will range from $200 and up,
depending on what you choose. A deposit of $1800 is required to hold your
spot. The balance is due one week before class begins.

Mon-Fri, Sept 15-Dec 12, 2008, 8:30-2:30, with studio time until 4:30, no
class Oct 13, Nov 3-10, Nov. 27-28.
