Book Crafts Workshop
December 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST| $95.00
This class is an introduction to several book crafts not taught in the bookbinding workshops. Participants will hand-sew book sections together with specialized techniques. In the bookbinding trade, these sections of pages are referred to as signatures. Students will learn sewing techniques not taught in the Bookbinding I class: the French Link Stitch, the Double Needle Coptic Stitch and the Herringbone Stitch.
Additionally, using gold leaf, gold foil and Historic Sugartown’s collection of bookbinding finishing tools participants will learn traditional methods of designing and decorating leather in gold, the same way fine books were gold-tooled hundreds of years ago.
Workshop Admission: $75/Person, all supplies included. Ages 8 & Up. (Ages 8 – 17 must be accompanied by an adult). Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 6 participants.
