[BKARTS] Intermediate Bookbinding class in Seattle

Bookbinding-the next step
Multi section rounded and backed cased hardcover book

In this 2 1/2 day class students will learn to round and back a multi- section book block and make a three-piece case covered in two materials, paper and cloth.

Rounding and backing books takes the student into a new world of bookbinding. It is a world that includes specialized equipment. It also includes exciting new possibilities to create fine book bindings in traditional or modern styles.

The students will work with supplied materials and can bring a text block of their own choice which they will have time to sew and round and back. They will need an un-sewn, pressed text blocks of 8-14 sections. Please contact me about the suitability of your choice.
