Upcoming Workshops // February to April

February 15, 2017 by Erin Fletcher

Here’s a list of my upcoming workshops, which will be taught at the North Bennet Street School in Boston.

Bookbinding 101
February 28 – March 9 (Tuesday and Thursday evenings)
6:00pm – 9:00pm

This shorter workshop focuses on technique as students will construct through the aid of kits. Students will make three different binding structures and create an enclosure to house everything. This workshop is perfect for anyone curious about bookbinding and what North Bennet has to offer. No prior experience necessary.

Limp Vellum Binding
March 4 – 5 (Saturday and Sunday)
8:30am – 4:30pm

This two-day workshop will focus on the classic and elegant limp vellum binding. Students will learn how to sew over alum-tawed thongs using a sewing frame, create hand-sewn endbands and manipulate vellum.

Fundamentals of Bookbinding I
April 24 – 28 (Monday – Friday)
8:30am – 4:30pm

There are still a few seats available in this workshop. This is a great workshop if you are interested in the full-time program at North Bennet or wanting to learn a new skill. During the workshop students will explore the basics of bookbinding through a variety of non-adhesive structures and finish the week by making a flatback case binding. We will discuss materials, adhesives, tool use and students will have access to traditional bindery equipment.
