On June 29th create a completely handcrafted memory book that accommodates the recording of memories, the telling of tales, and the inclusion of mementos like photos, letters, or cards. Students will learn to create 5 types of simple album pages and end up with 10 pages for their handmade album. They will also learn how to create both a sewn and post-binding.
Making a memory book from scratch is a hands on-way to gather some of the smaller pieces of people’s lives – items they touched, photos they loved, and tokens of experiences shared. It’s a contemplative process that helps you explore your creativity and your memories.
I am very much looking forward to sharing bookbinding and paper craft techniques and helping folks explore the possibilities of handcrafted books. The album structure we will make is a great starting point for a personal memory journal. I am so grateful to have a chance to share with this community.
