The caterpillar stitch has become one of the most intriguing and impressive of all the exposed sewing techniques. The sewing pattern which travels across the spine, begins on the cover with the antennae and head of the caterpillar and continues across the folds, sewing the signatures as you proceed onto the back cover.

Sew a giant “caterpillar” or two or three! onto hardcover books with multiple signatures.

• Make decorative sewing a part of your binding expression
• Add visual drama to your one-of-a-kind books by incorporating the actual sewing of a book as part of its decoration.

Date: Wednesday 12th May 2021
Time: 10am - 2pm

All materials and tools are supplied at the Bindery, along with self-serve tea, coffee and biscuits. Lunch - toasted sandwiches can be pre-ordered.

Please note: This is a technical workshop: No experience necessary, but the workshop requires a certain level of capability and confidence in using sharp instruments and being able to follow verbal instructions is expected.
