Introduction to Leather Bookbinding

In this workshop, students will learn to bind in quarter or half leather. After sewing a textblock on cloth tapes and lining the spine, the primary focus will be paring leather using an English-style knife and Scharf-fix paring machine, and covering in goatskin with marbled paper sides.


Friday, June 24 to Sunday, June 26, 2022.
8:30am-4:30pm.
North Bennet Street School, Boston, MA.

Miniature Bookbindings

Miniature books present difficult design and structural challenges to the bookbinder. A true miniature is less than three inches tall, and during this course, the student will construct three books of diminishing size: a long stitch binding with decorated boards, a lapped component binding, and an accordion in a wrapper with a tongue and slot enclosure. The course will contrast the utility of case binding, accordion, and non-adhesive structures for miniature books, with a concentration on flexibility and book action. We will analyze materials and techniques suitable for small format books. The limitations inherent in small-scale books will challenge students to do precisely executed and finely detailed work.\

Saturday, July 30 & Sunday, July 31, 2022.

8:30am-4:30pm.
North Bennet Street School, Boston, MA.
