Arts on TAP
TAP’s social workshop series where you can try your hand at different art forms, enjoy a drink, and let creativity flow.
Arts on TAP: Bookmaking
Wednesday February 20, 2019
6:00 – 8:30 PM
In this workshop, local artist Gabriella Solti will guide you step-by-step to create a small (5.5” x 4.25”) 48-page notebook with hardcover and exposed decorative spine. This project combines the elegance of case-bound books with the infinite possibility of creative individualization. You will learn to use simple tools and the ancient technique of bookbinding to create your own unique and elegant notebook that is both functional as well as an art object you can showcase on your mantelpiece.
