IDESN 2590 Bindings & Boxes

Using traditional bookbinding techniques as well as more contemporary methods, the art and craft of building boxes, portfolios and other containers for holding, carrying, or presenting work are taught. Students build basic forms such as the clamshell box, the drop-spine box, portfolio forms, and albums. Once basic skills have been mastered, the goal is to create a final piece that is experimental, challenging, and personal.
