Wooden Boards and Cloth Spine - Long Stitch Binding

 Registration is closed for this event
Instructor: Jim Croft | Cost: $250 members, $275 non-members
A textile spine is strong, flexible and doesn’t care how many holes you punch into it. Using wood for covers results in a quickly made, durable book. To make it, you need only a bone folder, thread, needle, and maybe an awl. The book can be made with a rounded spine that has a natural shoulder, if desired.
 
Students will begin the class making their own case by splitting and shaping their boards. As the case dries, students will be treated to a bonus demonstration on shaping bone tools with the opportunity to start their own tool. The workshop will progress through the sewing structure to complete their bindings.
