Workshop // Dos-a-dos Binding: Two Ways

The Dos-a-dos binding is quite a playful structure that allows you to bind two different text blocks back-to-back. In this workshop, students will explore this structure by making two versions: a single signature dos-a-dos and a flatback dos-a-dos. Within each of these bindings, we will look at two slightly different variations of casing-in or ways to attach the text block. Both models will be constructed with bookcloth and decorative paper.

This workshop will be live instruction through Zoom. Open to students at any skill level, but please contact me if you have questions determining if this workshop is right for you.
