Explosion Books and Ornaments (plus an origami box!)

Bookbinding Basics

Class #4

December Fun (Explosion Books and Ornaments)

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 6:00-9:00pm

Studio 164, Essex Studios, 2511 Essex Pl, Cincinnati, OH 45206

Join us and learn how to make a simple book that packs a lot of visual punch! Explosion books make great gifts or greeting cards, and we’ll show you an ornament variation too. You’ll have time to make several, and we’ll even teach you how to fold a quick origami box to put them all in! We’ve made this workshop a little cheaper too, as it will be a bit more casual and less structured than other workshops in the series.

Instructors: Jessica Ebert and Veronica Sorcher

Jessica Ebert has been making books since 2008 and loves making marbled paper, perhaps a little too much.  She is currently infatuated with modified long-stitch bindings, which she makes and sells on Etsy (www.etsy.com/shop/ebertje) and at Essex Art Walks

Veronica Sorcher, a lifelong book and paper addict, has been making handmade books since 2004, and teaching binding techniques to Cincinnati Book Arts Society members and beyond since 2013.

Introducing Bookbinding Basics!

The Cincinnati Book Arts Society is thrilled to announce Bookbinding Basics, a 3-year cycle of classes designed to bring students from an introduction to bookbinding through simple structures and historical bindings to enclosures and artistic variations for greater personal expression. The course begins September 13th with Tools and Tips, an introduction for those brand new to the book arts and wondering where to begin. By the end of the first year attendees will be familiar with a variety of adhesive and sewn bindings. Taught by experienced bookbinders and book artists, each class will build on the skills and techniques learned in preceding classes. Beginners are encouraged to attend them in sequence, but enrollment will be per class to allow more experienced students to choose the ones they wish to participate in. Classes will cost $25 for members, $35 for non-members, and will be held 6-9pm on the second Wednesday of every month at the CBAS studio in Essex Studios. Check the website regularly for updated information, course details, and to register for upcoming sessions. Contact cbasprograms@gmail.com with questions.

Using Acrylic Medium in Artist Books

Cody Goodin gave an excellent presentation “Using Acrylic Mediums in Artist’s Books” for the Cincinnati Books Arts Society Study Group 5/13 at the CBAS Studio. Thanks to his connections at Plaza Artist Materials in Cincinnati we had a number of Golden Acrylic products to experiment with in the class.
