ONE PLACE LEFT!

Stub Binding, 20th – 21st November 2021, £220. The stub binding was a popular binding style in the 19th century, for use on photograph albums and for binding maps. This versatile binding is still popular today and lends its self equally well to artists’ books, photographs albums, guest books and for housing single-sheet archival material. On the first day of the workshop you will learn how to fold and sew the sections and on day two you will make and decorate the covers. Suitable for all abilities.


Introduction to Bookbinding, 22nd January 2022, £110. A fun and informative day which will introduce the subject of bookbinding including tools & materials, terminology and a bit of the history too. Suitable for all levels with no prior experience required, you will make a simple single-section binding.

 


A Hybrid Drop-back Box, 12th March 2022. The hybrid drop-back box takes the best from two well established box making methods; the ‘all-in-one’ and the case method. During this workshop, you will make and cover a cloth drop-back box. For expediency all the parts will be pre-cut, but Arthur will guide you through the method and rational behind its construction. For more information on the subject, see my blog.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is being hosted at the Kelsall Community Centre (near Chester) by the North Wales & North West region of the Society of Bookbinders. To book, see The Society of Bookbinders.
