The case for this binding is attached to the text-block without glue – a structure that Lori has devised and refined. In the process of its making, participants learn a simple form of stub binding, pare some leather and experiment with dyeing vellum. They will also make their own book cloth on the first morning. It’s a workshop showcasing a variety of techniques and you will come away with a fantastic, bespoke binding that is also conservation friendly.

Lori Sauer is a Fellow and the current President of Designer Bookbinders. She specialises in fine binding and in 2011 she founded BINDING re:DEFINED, a programme of workshops focused on alternative book structures. She runs a very lively open studio course in Salisbury, produces her own bespoke pieces, does book repair and loves to spend time walking every day with her dog.
