Preparing & Printing Handmade Books

October 24

12:30 – 2:30


In this 2-hour workshop, you will learn about printing preparation for making multiple copies of handmade books.  We will work with three different book structures. You will learn about printing papers, how to maximize standard paper sizes, how to set up for printing and how to put your books together.  Great for reproducing your artwork or poetry for multiple gifts.
(Note:  This will not require Photoshop or other technical skills) 

No art experience necessary.
