[GBW] Monique Lallier Bookbinding workshop July 19-25, Wells College, NY

Monique Lallier will teach the week-long workshop, "Almost French:  
Binding with Leather" as part of The Wells College Book Arts Center's 
2009 Summer Institute, at their beautiful campus in Aurora, New York, on 
the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake.

Workshop description:

    Students will begin the week by sewing a text block that they will
    then round, back and cover with leather. They will make either a
    full leather binding or half leather binding, depending on their
    level of experience with leather, while learning the importance of
    every step in high quality binding and why things should be done the
    way they are.

    Paring the leather will be an important step of the process, using
    Scharf-Fix and Brockman machines, as well as spokeshaves and paring

    Participants will make either French-style embroidered end bands
    with batonnets or English-style with cord as a core; both will be

    The finished binding will be very similar to those done in the
    French technique.

    Monique will demonstrate every step on her own book made during the

    Open to all levels, from beginners to advanced.
