2020 COVID-19 UPDATE

2020 COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors, the Directors and I have decided to cancel all in-person classes at the American Academy of Bookbinding for the rest of 2020.
 
With this decision, I have begun to move forward with new plans for this year. I am exploring a number of models that can provide you access to online fine binding and conservation studies with our instructors. I am also looking at the possibility of a self-guided study in the studio, here in Telluride. There are many details to be worked out but if you’re interested in any of these options, please let me know.
 
In the coming weeks, I will be posting updates regarding these developments and opportunities. Please check back to this website or follow us on social media for updates.
 
Full refunds for deposits, by registered students, are being made for classes this year. For those who have received scholarships or tuition assistance awards this year, they will be carried forward through next year.

If you would like to make a donation to the American Academy of Bookbinding, it would be very much appreciated. All donations will go toward the development and expansion of our virtual programming and online teaching instruction. If you have any questions, please contact me at chip@ahhaa.org
 
Having been a student here myself, I know what an amazing experience the AAB offers. There is phenomenal energy of love and creativity when you study here. I look forward to the time when students are all back in the studio with our incredible instructors and making amazing work.
 
Take care, respect each other, and be safe during this unprecedented time.
 
Sincerely,
Chip
