Learning New Bindings in an Old Place

December 1, 2008 § Leave a comment

Bayntun’s bindery in Bath for a weekend of learning about quarter-sawn oak boards, leather dying, the preciseness of templates and happily sewing, coptic style, with two needles. In between times wandering amongst the century of tools, leather parings, rolls of buckram and tatters of gold. Very happy. Thanks to the Designer Bookbinders for this workshop series – more in the Spring!
