Building Bibliophilia is the beginning of an ongoing series of bookbinding workshops hosted and developed by artist and educator Cathleen Mooses and architect artist and fellow Troels Steenholdt Heiredal, in celebration of the many aspects of the book.

This initial session of day-long workshops will act as an introduction to bookbinding and an opening of the subject. All workshops will consist of a hands on component, a talk/performance element and a communal dinner.

The first three individual workshops will be held on Saturdays in 2015 starting September 19th. Cathleen Mooses will teach the first workshop on hard-cover pamphlets, and accordion structures with a focus on artist books. The day will also include an installation by Cathleen and Troels in conjunction with a talk & poetry reading.
