Lesson Plans


I need input on my new class!

Hi everyone,
I will be teaching an incredibly short (two 2 hour sessions) class
incorporating papermaking and bookbinding. These are 12 adults who have taken
my papermaking course, so they already have the papermaking fundamentals.
Part of the class will be creating paper for the books, the other on binding
fundamentals. My dilema is which bookbinding methods to teach them. I would
like to cover at least two methods. One a small journal, the second an album
of some sort (expandable). Are there any other methods of binding you can
recommend that may be more suited to this time frame? They don't have to be
traditional--in fact, the more creative the better! Also, any pointers on
making this run smoothly would be appreciated! This is the first time I will
be teaching this class and am working on its set up and presentation.
Teaching new classes are very energizing for me! (Stressful, but
invigorating!)

I need input!
Thanks,
