FOREST GROVE — Ah, those were the days: Gutenberg hadn’t invented the printing press, and monks not only made the best beer, they handmade rare books for the privileged few who could read.
Now you can walk in their footsteps, and maybe even produce a holiday gift, in Bookbinding (CRN48212) a one-day seminar at the Valley Art Association on Saturday, Nov. 2.
Learn to make an updated version of their medieval books with wooden covers and leather straps. Tuition is $17.50 plus $15 payable to the instructor at the class.
The Valley Art Association is located at 2020 Main Street in Forest Grove. For more information, dial Portland Community College at 614-2708.
