In this weekend workshop, participants will immerse themselves in the art of bookbinding. Each attendee will create an 8-signature, fully leather-bound blank book using traditional methods employed from the first century through the mid-19th century. They will hand-sew the book sections (called signatures); secure the cover boards; sew a headband across the top and bottom of the spine, perform rounding and backing of the spine; add a full leather cover, and lay down beautifully hand-marbled endpapers provided for them. Class will take place over a weekend. Each day will go from 9AM to 3PM. Participants must take part in both days.
All materials are included, and tools will be provided. Level II participants may bring their own book if they get pre-approval.**
Cost per Person*: Bookbinding Level I & II Weekend: $195/Adult
