Alan Fitch’s workshop on made endpapers

July 13 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Community Centre Kelsall, Chester Road
Kelsall, CW6 0SB
+ Google Map

Any structure is only as strong as its weakest point. In bookbinding this inherently centres on the spine and the joints in the spine area. One specific area in the spine is the fold in the endpaper. Traditionally an endpaper has consisted of a folded sheet of paper tipped onto the first and last sections of the book and is therefore only as strong as the sheet of paper. To increase the strength in this area it is necessary to…

A workshop on the delightful Crisscross binding (aka The Secret Belgian Binding) with its distinctive sewn-in spine which is a structure devised by Anne Goy. The three-part cover is made first, and the sections are sewn in afterwards.  The front cover should fold completely to the back making this an ideal structure for sketchbooks. We will make both the basic and advanced models and explore the creative possibilities offered by variations of sewing patterns, threads and materials. www.owlbarnstudio.uk

Arthur Green’s workshop on non-adhesive paper binding

+ Google Map

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.…
