Hand Bookbinding Workshop with Susan MillsSundays Sept 25 and Oct 2at Creative Commons YXEin Riversdale, Saskatoon
Do you want to get things together in book form? Or make yourself a custom notebook? Have you ever wondered just how a book is made? In this workshop you will learn the basics of hand binding. We will cover hand tools, materials and adhesives. We will make paperback and hardcover books, glued and sewn books, single sheet and ‘signature’ books and even an accordion. We will work with both historical and contemporary structures and materials.
Everyone with an interest in books is welcome. Structures include a non-adhesive pamphlet, a bound accordion, a papyrus scroll, a single quire Nag Hammadi Coptic codex, and single and multi signature full cloth books. All materials and tools are included.
