Soft Spine Binding Workshop April 7, 2016
Learn from skilled craftswoman Kendra Last as she takes you through the step-by-step process of binding a book. At the end of this one day workshop you will leave with the knowledge and skills needed to create beautiful hand-crafted Soft Spine books. Go home with a completed book ready to be used.
This binding is very similar to the Codex or Flat Back bindings, what most people think of as a hard cover book. Kendra has simplified a few steps and made this binding doable for even the most beginner bookbinder. Leave with a finished book in just one night.
This binding is suitable for both beginning and advanced bookbinders.
We will be using pre-sewn text blocks, please specify if you would like lined or blank pages.
Please bring with you: Apron, quart size jar, ruler, mechanical pencil, scissors, large heavy book (to use as weight), self-healing cutting mat, glue brush (1/2-1" wide flat tip paint brush, medium to high quality), x-acto knife or scalpel*, bone folder*, small pray bottle *=limited number available for purchase at class
