Exposed Spine Bindings are a lovely way to showcase your hand sewn books. Multi-signature bindings Coptic Stitch, French Link Stitch, and Long Stitch will be the subject of this two evening course. Students will come away with four completed books.

Using demonstration, examples, diagrams and lots of individual attention students are guided through the creation of four hand-sewn books. Use of bookbinding tools and a variety of book cover structures will also be demonstrated.

  • scissors
  • paper trimmer
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • bone folder
  • paper piercing tool
  • piercing mat
  • embossing stylus or scoring tool
