Tuition: $160/$210 (4 wks)
  Have you always wanted to make a wooden-board binding but were afraid to try? You
probably thought it would be a long and complicated affair requiring skills you’ve little
experience with. Well, ‘tain’t necessarily so!
  Allow us to introduce you to the Stonyhurst Gospel, a small and elegant wooden-board
binding covered in leather with raised decorations on the boards and sewn using a Coptic
stitch. The original, bound ca. 796, is the oldest intact binding from Western Europe.
It’s an ideal adventure for both novice and advanced students of bookbinding. Based on a
very simple sewing structure, the Stonyhurst structure is full of creative possibilities.
  During the four classes we’ll touch on some book history related to the Stonyhurst
Gospel, prepare wooden boards for sewing and decoration, sew our books, and cover them in
leather (for those interested). Given time we’ll explore Coptic variations and personal
interpretations of this fascinating and versatile structure.

bring their papers to successive classes for covering their boxes — first a small square
box with a separate lid, then a larger one with a hinged lid.
