The Jace Graf book and box making workshop was a huge success with all 10 students going home with an elegant hand-bound book and drop-spine box.
In this 2-day workshop participants learned how to construct a multi-signature sewn-board binding originally designed by renowned bookbinder, Gary Frost. The accompanying box is a versatile and useful compartment that is designed to protect and house a variety of book structures, portfolios and/or prints.
The participants also learned several valuable “tricks of the trade” that Jace graciously offered throughout the weekend.
No doubt, we will be seeing some awesome new book related projects from our community using the techniques learned during this special workshop. We hope to have Jace back soon to teach us more exciting book and box making skills.
