These workshops are designed for participants with or without bookbinding experience.
1. The Secret Belgian Binding With Hard Back Cover Boards
Participants will have the opportunity to make a hardback book that has an
elegant and distinctive thread pattern of sewing visible on the outside of the book . This is used to lace the front and back covers to the cover spine piece. Measures are taken in the binding construction, to hide the interior thread on the inside of the covers. This binding is robust and durable and allows the book to lie flat when open.
2. The Drum Leaf Binding with Hard Cover Boards
The Drum Leaf Binding structure is ideal for printmakers and photographers, or those presenting visual narratives without the disruption of sewing thread dominating visual continuity in page content.
The pages in this book structure are made of single sided folios with full-page spreads . This makes the task of printing and layout imposition of page content relatively straightforward. The adhesive based book with hardback covers will open flat and has no stitching through the centrefolds.
All equipment and materials will be provided for the workshop.
