This short evening course will introduce students to two basic book structures. These form the foundation for further, more advanced processes. The course is suitable for complete beginners or for anyone with a little knowledge wishing to learn more.
Over the course of the evening you will complete two notebooks, and be taught the correct terminology, alongside hands on tutorials, plus a few tricks of the trade.
Roger Grech is a Bookbinder and Printmaker, teaching at York College and edition Binding at Stephen Conway Bookbinders Ltd in Halifax. Roger also runs his own workshop, Papercut Bindery, where he binds bespoke journals, small print run editions and undertakes repair work on old well-loved bindings.
The two books you will be making are:
– A single section hardback notebook. Quarter bound in cloth, paper sides and case bound with ‘squares’ (little lip round the edge).
– A softback notebook with pre foiled cover.
All materials and equipment will be provided.
