Learn to make books, paper, paste papers, decorative papers and boxes. Come with no experience and learn to use book binding tools to make simple book structures and boxes. Or come with years of experience and work on projects that you have been meaning to do for a long time, but maybe you needed a little instruction and help, or you just never got around to doing it, or needed use of a board shear.

Bindery classes are limited to a maximum of five participants, so you get lots of one-on-one instruction. Patricia has been binding books and teaching school programs from pre-school through graduate level for over thirty years, since apprenticing in London, England.
