A variant of a 'Bradel' German Binding with a rounded leather spine back and beautiful marbled papers.

Often described as the quintessential German binding structure, this binding is precise and adaptable to allow for the use of different covering materials on the spine and boards.

Be introduced to making a book with a luxurious leather spine, complete with beautiful decorative marbled paper. This course provides you with all the techniques needed for refining and practicing these skills.

Over one intensive day you will learn how to make a German Hardbound book, covered with a leather spine, with marbled papers. We shall use artist grade papers, finished in hardcover with your choice of specialty leather and beautiful decorative papers.

Time: 9.30am - 4pm

All materials and tools are supplied at the Bindery.
Bottled water, Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided free for you to help yourself throughout the day.
