North Bennet Street School has just published a new workshop catalog and updated the course listings online at www.nbss.org.
Coming up fast: Todd Pattison with “Rebacking Bookbindings,” on March 20-21, 2010.
Also beginning in late March is a 5 Saturday run of “Introduction to Cloth Case Bookbinding” with Amanda Nelsen, and a three-day class from Stacie Dolin on Photo Albums. There are a variety of courses on bookbinding, calligraphy, and marbling being offered from now through the summer from new visiting teachers and regular workshop instructors.
A few highlights include “New Oriental Bindings” with Monique Lallier (in collaboration with the American Academy of Bookbinding) and Katherine Beaty will offer a class on Islamic Binding. Pop-up artist Paul Johnson is back with a new lecture and a couple of classes. And for all those that have requested more conse rvation oriented courses there is “Tips and Tricks for Book and Paper Conservation” with Renate Mesmer in August.
