The New England Chapter has just opened registration for a two-day workshop on March 14th and 15th with the ever so delightful and highly knowledgeable Jim Croft that will be held at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA. Here are the details:
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.
