Three days at Bookworks!

decbindingclassprojectsFriday through Sunday I enjoyed a great workshop on basic binding techniques. It allowed me to reinforce some fundamentals and learn new techniques.  We got a lot of practice preparing text blocks and sewing.  We made five structures culminating in an Ethiopian binding which involves sewing with four needles simultaneously.  A special bonus was using the studio’s board shear to rapidly reduce my stock of book board into sizes I need for ongoing products.  We are SO lucky to have Asheville Bookworks here for our learning and community!
