This book art class focuses on one book structure at a time, condensing the lectures, demonstrations and studio time, to cover material quickly. The 3-day class will look at specific bindings – books with and without sewing, with and without glue; books that do not look ‘handmade’ and books that do, historical book structures and books that problem-solve the use of heavy papers, digital coated papers, unusual materials, and editions. Beginners are welcome and will find expert introductory instruction. Those with more experience can practice, refine, and expand their book repertoires.

Susan Mills  is a hand bookbinder and a visual artist who works entirely in book form. She is a longtime book art instructor at Nova Scotia College of Art and Designin Halifax and is the founder and instructor of the tiny not-for-credit Full Tilt Bookbinding Single Session Bookbinding Classes in NYC.  She hosts the audio podcast series Bookbinding Now. You can read two of her artist books, published by Women's Studio Workshop -  Ruderal Plants of Manhattan and twentysix plants.
