Non-Adhesive Bindings // May

The number of ways to sew a book can seem almost endless. In this workshop, students will explore just five different sewing patterns that are left exposed on the spine offering both structural support to the binding and unique decoration. Learning these sewing patterns, which stem from historical structures, will give students the foundation and knowledge to further explore non-adhesive bindings on their own.
