FREE Book-binding Workshop: HIBF2012!
Houston Independent Book Festival is excited to partner with the Houston Book Arts Guild for a free hour-long bookbinding workshop for children ages 7-12!
The workshop will focus on a variation of the pamphlet-style stitched books taught by Lee Steiner and Amanda Focke of the Houston Book Arts Guild. The workshop is usually taught in the Museum of Printing History’s Summer Book Arts Camp but Book Festival is proud to host this one-time session from 11:00-12:00 on April 14th on the Menil grounds.
Children and parents will learn bookbinding skills such as folding and nesting folios into signatures, threading ribbon on a blunt bookbinding needle, stitching, and secure the binding with a knot. These skills will provide a child with the basics to go on and independently produce their own small books!
All materials will be provided on the day of the event. Parents must accompany their child to the workshop and sign a waiver on-site to participate.
Slots for the book-binding event is first come-first served, so don’t be late!
