Parchment over Boards Workshop

Instructor: Peter Geraty

Creative Arts Workshop.  New Haven, CT.
Saturday & Sunday, 9am – 5pm, Oct 29 – 30 Cost: $450  members: $405

This workshop will encompass the binding of a book into parchment over boards.  Although parchment has a reputation of being difficult to work with, it is an ideal binding material. It is beautiful and  stronger than any other material we normally work with in bookbinding. In this workshop, we will sew a blank book, round and back it, sew endbands, create the parchment cover and case the book in. To accomplish this, the class will move quickly through all the steps; students should be comfortable sewing a textblock, endbands and making cloth cases. Please bring a standard binding kit – bone folders, sewing needle, awl, scissors, dividers, pencil, metric ruler, knife and straightedge, glue brushes, backing hammer (if you have one). If you have a sanding drum, such as a Dremel or a Foredom, you should also bring it. Please register by October 10 to assure place in the class. A $75 materials fee for parchment is included.
