Arthur Green’s workshop on non-adhesive paper binding
September 14 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
This simple paper structure was devised as a conservation binding for 17th century printed paper pamphlets. The non-adhesive structure provides a robust covering but enables the leaves to be removed easily if needed. It is particularly well suited to slim books where sewing on cords wouldn’t be appropriate, and although devised with conservation in mind, could quite easily be decorated and turned into an artist’s book. Arthur will provide step-by-step instructions and will discuss the importance of the materials provided. The workshop is suitable for all abilities.
All materials will be provided, however, students are requested to bring the following tools – sharp craft-knife, cutting mat, sharp pencil, straight-edge, awl, sewing needles, sharp bone-folder, scissors, glue brushes
Materials fee £15
