March 26-28 - LATE MEDIEVAL BINDING, PART 2

The class will pick up where last year's workshop with Maria Fredericks
left off. It will address primary covering, endbands, pin-and-strap
fore-edge closures, and finally, the secondary covering (chemise or overcover).

Students should come to class with a book block already sewn and with
boards attached in 15th-century or "gothic" style. The class will begin
with a review session on the primary endband, followed by creation of
simple tawed straps with brass hardware to hold the book closed. We will
cover the book in full chamois to simulate the soft tawed skin used on many
late medieval books, and execute a secondary endband typical of the period.

At the end of the class, students should have an understanding of the basic
structural features of the 15th-century English binding, which they can use
for historical models, conservation work, or for incorporation into
artists' books or design bindings.

WHEN: Friday, March 26, 5:30 to 8:30, Saturday & Sunday, March 27 & 28,
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

WHERE: 2nd Floor Bindery, Arronson Hall, 333 S. Broad Street, University of
the Arts, Philadelphia, PA

COST: $150 GBW members, $175 non members (A check holds your spot.) Fee is
non-refundable after March 10. There is a $30 materials fee payable to
instructor at the workshop. Limit, 8 participants. Make check payable to
