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.
