An Introduction to Islamic Bindings

12th March 2022 - 13th March 2022

This workshop will introduce the Islamic binding structure. Participants will make a model of an Islamic book, drawing on structural features from historic exemplars. Twined chevron-patterned endbands will be sewn, and various decoration techniques will be used to ornament the covers, including the application of gold.

Some experience of bookbinding would be useful.

Weekend workshop fees are £185 for DB and SoB members and £205 for non-members.  Each has a materials fee payable on the weekend direct to the tutor.

Further details and booking forms will be available from Sarah Burns sarah@the-burns.com  Or 01643 841116
