Flat Back Case Bindings.

The case binding is a way of making books whereby the cover (the case) is made separately from the text block and then attached to it. This one day course provides an intensive introduction to Bookbinding without any prior knowledge.

You will learn skills in the technique of hand Bookbinding, enabling you to go onto more complex and experimental bindings.

Over one intensive day you will learn how to fold, sew, cover and complete a Flat Back Case Binding, covered in full cloth with beautiful Marbled end papers.

• This course is for anyone with an interest in hand binding. It is a very thorough course providing essential skills that will take you through your whole binding journey.
• A great refresher course for those who have learnt binding elsewhere or wish to pursue bookbinding again after a break.
• Traditional book structures are explored, using materials that will endure over time.
• You will get to use a variety of tools and materials, and learn how to apply them to the sewing and construction of your book.
