A versatile artist
Khushboo is an art and craft enthusiast from the M.S. University, Baroda, who has explored paper and paper craft, with her favorites being papermaking and book binding. Through a simple DIY approach, she encourages the joy of exploring this craft with children and adults alike.
Khushboo also runs her private studio Studio Khushboo in Baroda.
Right from the medieval age, the time when documentation of information started, binding valuable manuscripts became inevitable to preserve and restore them. These techniques have evolved over time, but the joy of binding a book on one's own is still the same. It can be a destressing and relaxing activity. You can make a custom diary for yourself, add handmade sheets, create bookmarks, planner pages, and the list goes on.
In this workshop, explore hand bookbinding, from the earliest binding styles to the contemporary. The objective is to create a harmonious set of beautiful books, and learn structures that can be easily repeated.
This module has been developed for people self motivated to explore the creative possibilities of the art through a simple ‘do-it yourself ‘ approach, encouraging learning by doing. Participants can use the skills and knowledge gained in class to work independently on their own projects.
