Thursday March 10, 2022 at 18:30 to Sunday March 13, 2022 at 13:30
The third stage in learning bookbinding. Making books covered in leather is always a most satisfying thing to do. Make a C19th western style, smooth spine, quarter bound book in goatskin leather with decorative marbled paper sidings. Practise those endpaper making and sewing skills, taking the book through the construction stages, board attachment, leather preparation and forwarding. Some prior experience and good hand skills needed but be assured that Doug will take you through the process step by step.
