Introduction to Bookbinding — Participants will learn the basics of bookbinding by making a sewn, multi-section, hard-cover, blank book. Students will learn about paper properties, book-covering materials, tools and equipment that bookbinders use, as well as how to bind a book. There will be an opportunity for students to see and handle a variety of different types of bindings and decorated papers (marbled, paste papers, and ink-dyed), and a discussion of ways to make bindings unique using decorative papers (bought or handmade) and decorating techniques for the covers. Participants are limited to 10. Instructor Pamela Leutz has been binding books since 1979. She took classes from a local arts and crafts guild in Dallas, got hooked and continued her studies with master bookbinders in the U.S., Switzerland and the Czech Republic. For the last 30 years, she has taught extensively, both as a regular instructor at an arts and crafts school, and in workshops at museums, festivals and university community classes in Dallas. Leutz’s design bindings have been exhibited nationally. In addition, she is the author of the book, “The Thread That Binds: Interviews with Private Practice Bookbinders.” Participants may register for this class through the Enrich Your Life website at https://www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/summerprograms/enrich-your-life-community-courses/ or by calling (719) 389-6939.
