Introduction to Bookbinding for Kids

June 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


ABM is delighted to have Mexican bookbinder and teacher Dulce Maria Luna offer this three-hour workshop for kids from 7-17. Students will learn about the elements that make up a book, and the materials and tools used in its construction and care.

Bookbinding is a traditional craft that is still practiced today. In this 3-hour session students will produce a small notebook for personal use. Students will learn the elements of hand binding, and gain knowledge of the materials and tools used.

Children will learn the parts of a book by constructing it from start to finish-while putting their own creative stamp on it! After a brief introduction outlining the history of the book, students will fold and sew, hand paint their endpapers, prepare the spine, glue, assemble, and decorate the cover of their book.


Cost: $30. (Materials and tools included)
Age: 7 to 17
Capacity: 20 students
