This class will give beginning students the building blocks to start making their own handcrafted books. Students will learn 4 basic binding structures, plus variations, including the pamphlet stitch, accordion binding, and the Japanese side stab. Each student will discover how different structures can be used together in creative ways, while making examples of each structure to take home. Sat, May 9 • 11am-3pm $30 Materials Fee payable to the teacher on the first day of class Instructor bio: Rochelle Youk is a multidisciplinary visual artist with a practice investigating craft traditions through the lens of cultural exchange. Much of her work is informed by the processes that are required by specific art forms, including that of bookbinding. After earning an MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute, she completed a bookbinding apprenticeship at letterpress publisher, The Arion Press where she has continued to work in various roles for almost a decade. She also works as an independent bookbinder for Bay Area artists and publishers and, in that role, has guest lectured at CCA, SFAI, as well as other local creative spaces.
