Cover Creations: Laser Cutting & Book Design with Katy Baum & Claire Carver
Create a one-of-a-kind photo album or scrapbook just in time for the holidays with Katy Baum & Claire Carver. Using the modern technology of laser cutting to engrave book cover designs, in combination with the historical traditions of bookbinding, students will learn the processes of designing and creating a custom journal or sketchbook. Learn how to sew the pages of a book, prepare materials for the cover, and how to bring designs to life with a laser cutter. Finally, pull it all together in a bookbinding process known as “casing-in.” The finished product will make a great gift or a personal keepsake for drawings, doodles, and creative writing. PLEASE NOTE: This class will be held at the STEM lab at the high school and the American Academy of Bookbinding.
