Paste Paper + Soft Cover Structures
with Jennaway Pearson
In this course I will teach you how to make paste paper and each student will create a dozen of their own sheets! Paste paper makes beautiful decorative paper and we will use several of the sheets we make to create covers for our soft cover books. This class will teach three soft cover sewn bindings: Dot Dash Binding, Chain Binding, and a sewn Pamphlet Binding.
