Simple Book Repairs for At-home Curators | Christopher McAfee

Wednesdays, 5:30–8:30

This course explores basic methods of book conservation as well as the reasons for performing, or not performing, conservation treatments. The class works together to determine the best treatment options for specific damaged books while also considering the ethics of performing those treatments. As students perform conservation treatments, they learn about appropriate conservation materials, adhesives used by conservators, and the tools of the trade. Students leave with a minimum of two treatments, a basic kit of conservation tools, and foundational knowledge to complete basic repairs at home. Space is limited to 15 participants.

Making Short Work of the Long-Stitc...

Saturday, August 5, 2017, 1 – 5pm
Making Short Work of the Long-Stitch | Emily Tipps

August 5
Saturday, 1:00–5:00
$65, registration required

A multi-signature, non-adhesive binding with exposed sewing on the spine, the long-stitch structure is relatively quick and simple to bind; yet once the basics are learned, limitless creative interpretations are possible. This workshop teaches the basic long-stitch technique and demonstrates how high-quality materials, used thoughtfully, increase the tactile and visual impression of a hand-bound book. Participants incorporate a leather spine, handmade paper covers, hand-colored linen thread, and decorative endsheets to create an elegant variation of the versatile long-stitch binding. Space is limited to 15 participants.
