Bookbinding

Calling all bibliophiles! Ever wonder how the books you love are made? You'll learn how, PLUS make your own books in this camp for bookworms! Campers will create their own books out of most any material by sewing & binding the pages. We will learn different styles of binding: saddle stitch, loop stitched, or Coptic and Japanese, for example. Campers will practice using different bookbinding tools such as an awl, rulers and scissors, and bookbinding thread and needles. A guest speaker will tell us about her experiences binding books and give tips from a professional standpoint. We'll round out our activities with a special field trip to the book collection at UNC Charlotte! Drop-off and pick-up in the carpool loop.
