Materials saved from the landfill:
paper, old books, magazines

Skills you’ll learn:
b-stitch binding/saddle stitch, stab binding, accordion fold, folding 8-paged zine

Make a book anywhere, out of anything! Join Caitlin Metz, educator and illustrator for a playful class where they’ll talk about why books are the perfect container for big and little thoughts and emotions, and most importantly how to make one out of anything, anywhere, at any time.

Together we’ll make a tiny library of easily constructed books/booklets. Learn about all the different kinds of materials you can use for covers, inside pages, closures, and belly bands. We’ll talk about everything from how to tear down one large sheet of paper into equally sized pages for your book to folding down one single page into an 8 page zine or perfect accordion.
