repair, both cloth and leather bindings, to work on during class. No
prerequisite is required for this class.

This workshop takes place at the American Academy of Bookbinding at
Hollander's in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hollander's School of Book and
Paper Arts was established in 1994. Students will be provided with a
list of housing options and will make their own housing
