DB/SoB Joint Weekend Workshops
Strapped-on Case in Fabric
Tutors: Lori Sauer
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.
