Over the course of a weekend, learn traditional book making techniques to create a series of hard back books. Master sewing sections onto tapes, kettle stitches and weavers knots, while learning how to attach endpapers and cover boards beautifully in book cloth. Adding finishing touches such as headbands and bookmark ribbons gives the books an extra elegance. Learn how to incorporate found papers and ephemera into these structures and leave the workshop having created a hard back concertina/accordion book and a hard back cloth bound edition. This course is suitable for complete beginners and will ensure a love of making books for years to come.
I have taught this course consistently over a number of years. Please contact me directly with enquiries regarding the scheduling of this workshop.
