BOOKBINDING: THE MAMLUK BINDING MODEL
October 5th at 18:30 to October 8th at 13:30
For nearly 1000 years, the Mamluks became a powerful military knightly caste in various Muslim ruled societies, developing their own style of religious text binding. We will make a model of this Islamic binding creating embossed leather, papers and covers using metal and wooden patterned blocks and traditional finishing tools as well as sewing chevron headbands – good hand skills needed. Don’t worry Doug will take you through each step.
