West Midlands: Medieval Structural Endbands – Arthur Green
May 16 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
A one day workshop with Arthur Green, independent book conservator. This practical workshop will explore a mediaeval two-part structural endband. The day will start by working two basic, single core, primary endband styles and the session will finish by working a decorative chevron over the primary endband. Arthur will give guidance and advice on how the endbands are worked and how they can be adapted to provide strong yet minimally interventive repairs. This workshop is suitable for those with at least some experience of sewing.
Fee: £20 (members); £30 (non-members) plus £5 materials cost.
There will be a maximum of 15 spaces.
