For full info, see

In this class, students will make a slip case out of sturdy book board, with a lined interior, and with an applied cover of book cloth. Measuring for proper overlaps, application of adhesive, and application of bookcloth will be addressed. Students will learn the sequence of cuts and paste-downs necessary to create neat and well-tailored corners. Once these techniques are learned, they can be applied to the construction of complex clamshell boxes. Also, directions for making a simple but effective slipcase out of card stock will be demonstrated.
