Single Section Staple Binding in Stone
April 1-3, 2016
This three-day class will explore binding structures using real stone veneer in the techniques created by Sün Evrard. Students will construct a modified historical structure with conservation principles in mind, using the stone veneer. This single-section staple binding is simple but is executed with a lot of care and attention to detail. The pamphlet binding is sewn and then attached to the boards using copper wire as secondary sewing. We will decorate the bindings by cutting into the stone and painting with acrylic. Students will create one binding, and if time allows, we will explore uses of the stone as a decorative element for bindings or boxes.
The stone veneer product used in this workshop is the result of advancements of laser cutting techniques. The veneer is a .2 mm thick slice of stone mounted on a thin fabric that can be folded, imprinted, cut and tooled.
