Zoom Class - March 25, 26, 27 5-7PM (est)

$115 per person

The spine of the intriguing Piano Hinge binding is one that is woven instead of glued or sewn – it is held together using dowels or sticks. This structure, invented by Hedi Kyle, was named because of its resemblance to the hinge of a piano lid. 

In this class, you’ll learn how to construct both the basic Piano Hinge book and the Piano Hinge Album (it’s got storage pockets!).

In this class, each participant will leave class with two books to keep as a reference for each structure. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience is required. You'll feel more comfortable in the class if you have experience using an X-Acto knife.

Participants are encouraged to collect small photos, paper ephemera, and/or other flat items to put in the pockets.

For ages 14 and up.
