Workshop // Secret Belgian Binding - Three Ways

Description
This workshop will explore the Secret Belgian structure and ways to modify it. The binding is simple and easy to construct for any skill level. The binding opens flat and is perfect for thinner text blocks.

During this workshop students will use techniques developed by Anne Goy to alter the traditional appearance of the structure through added weaving and Tyvek.

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.
