How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about beginner book binding techniques, proper paper folding/cutting, and book design skills. 
Any specific brands are just my own recommendations. You are always welcome to use what you already have. 1. Drawing paper (or multimedia paper). At least 5 pieces but more is great. The size of paper will determine the size of your sketchbook. So if you choose 6in x 9in paper, your sketchbook will be half that size. 2. Scissors. 3. Either a bone folder or a spoon (We’ll use this to press creases while folding). 4. String for binding. This can be embroidery thread, yarn, ribbon, really anything. 5. An embroidery needle (can use other needles IF the string you choose is small enough.) 6 .Something for decorating the cover: paint, markers, pencils, etc. Whatever you like. 7. A small cup of water 8. Elmer’s glue (liquid not a stick) OR Mod Podge 9. Pencil and ruler 10. An old paintbrush (we’ll be using it to spread glue)
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
