Introduction to Bookbinding with Kaitlin Patterson

  • DRAW/YMCA 507 Broadway Kingston, NY, 12401 United States (map)

Introduction to Bookbinding

This class will introduce students to bookbinding. Students will learn about the many tools used, and the different structures of bound books. From single sheet books to the antique form of raised bands, you will walk away from this class with a world of knowledge you didn't know existed! Students will complete two books in the three hour class, a pamphlet stitch book with a soft cover, and either a triangle or star accordion book with a hard cover. We hope to see you there!

Kaitlin is a Kingston High School and School of the Art Institute of Chicago alumni. She has extensive knowledge of bookbinding, from custom made books to antique book repair. Previously employed in Manhattan at one of the only bookbinding companies in New York, she has returned home to the Hudson Valley to bring her knowledge of bookbinding upstate in hopes of revitalizing a dying art in an ever digitizing world.
