Handmade Books: Painted and Sewn

Handmade Books

Taught by Berkeley artist Elaine Chu. Create all three books in a single workshop! Using vibrant inks, we’ll paint our own covers and learn to fold and construct these elegant structures. Add bead embellishments. Use these techniques to easily make more
books on your own!

No experience necessary but attention to detail and accuracy are helpful.

Elaine G. Chu is an artist/educator with a background in graphic design, bookmaking and music. Her beeswax art has been published in “Somerset Studio Gallery” magazine.

Typically we try to give credit for student to take another class at a later date. If refund is requested, we subtract 10% processing fee.
