Book - Lorraine Brown
2 - DAY WORKSHOP (TUESDAY / WEDNESDAY). MATERIAL COST $30.00


In this workshop you will learn how to create a book structure utilising split leather thonging for the book block. This structure has been proven time and time again to be very strong. This method of using leather sewing supports was used from the fifteenth to mid seventeenth century on English bindings. It was mainly used for larger tomes as its superior strength was evident.

You will firstly, cut / tear and fold your pages to create the sections. Then, learn how to guard your pages using decorative papers, create your sewing stations using a template and sew up your book block in this style.

Once the book block has been made, we will create a decorative way for your coverings using thin leather, painted edges and a raised abstract format to create your personal unique book. This in turn lends itself to endless possibilities.
