[BKARTS] Workshop and lecture at Cornell

A Day with Peter Verheyen: workshop and lecture at Cornell University
October 11, 2007

Workshop on Historic Headbands

"A book without an endband is like a gentleman without a tie."

Spend a morning making models of historic endbands. We'll start with the basic wrapped core 'stuck-on' endband. Then we'll move on to explore numerous historical variations, ranging from the basic 'primary,' which serves as a foundation for plaited and braided endbands using thread and leather, to more modern single- and double-core variations. Our samples will be sewn on robust practice "cards."

All materials will be provided.

Workshop will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Conservation Lab. (B-31) of Olin Library, Cornell University.
Cost for the workshop is $30 for Cornell Book Arts Club members/ $40 for non-members. Includes materials.
Limited to 12 people.

For more information or to register contact: Michele Brown, 255-2484 or mb72@xxxxxxxxxxx or bookarts@xxxxxxxxxxxx Checks can be made out to the Cornell Book Arts Club.
