Westchester Bookbinding Class

We are beginning a new semester at Emerson Westchester Campus. 

Calligraphy and Bookbinding Class

This is a special calligraphy session where we will feature bookbinding as our project. Master bookbinding teacher Dick Pio will join DeAnn Singh in teaching a never before offered class making various book structures at Emerson Learning Center. Calligraphy has always been a part of the book arts and it’s necessary to have some understanding of this process.

We will start with simple structures focusing on color and texture coordination then progress to more interesting and complex projects. There will be several books completed. We will finish with a slip-case that will house all the books together. You will practice measuring, cutting, folding paper accurately and all the skills needed for bookbinding. Those who wish to include calligraphy and text in their books will have assistance as well.

Emerson Center 8810 Emerson Ave. Westchester CA 90045

Please email me and let me know if you are interested in joining this class. Dick won’t be able to join the class till the second week of May, because of prior commitments. Look under materials list at the top of this page. The main thing for the first class is papers in colors that will carry through the whole semester. All the books will be housed in a slip case so you want them to look nice together.
