[BKARTS] Leather Rebacking at the Center for Book Arts

Please join us in April for a new weeklong intensive workshop in
leather conservation at the Center for Book Arts:
NEW! Leather Rebacking
Repairing damaged leather books can be a challenging task for
bookbinders. Learn rebacking of leather books on a hollow and the
tricky tightback in this weeklong intensive, which will cover spine
cleaning and relining, inner joint repairs, and corner consolidation
and repair. We will discuss issues relating to leather, dyes,
consolidants, adhesives, and tools for lifting and paring.  Come with
your questions and books to practice on. Students should bring to
class four old leather bindings with loose boards and/ or spines, or
cracked joints. The books should have intact sewing and sound leather
(no red rot). Remember that these books are intended for practice, and
shouldn't have any real value. 
Prerequisite: Bookbinding II or Bookbinding I & previous experience
working with leather
