Workshop // Secret Belgian Binding - Three Ways
This workshop will explore the Secret Belgian structure and ways to modify it. The binding is simple and easy to construct; it 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, with two tutorials covering the amount of material in a one day in-person workshop. Each session will be recorded and the videos will be available to students.
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.
