Make-up boards, construct endpapers, attach boards and cover a chosen text-block in quarter or full vellum. Suitable for intermediate and advanced learners. This is a structured course for intermediate and advanced learners on the covering of a boarded text in quarter- or full vellum. From a choice of blank text blocks, including address book, diary, or photo album, you will produce a hard-wearing and classic binding. Additionally, we will examine vellum structures and explore the options available for conservation of antiquarian material. You are expected to have some previous experience in hand book-binding ie. have undertaken a basic or introductory course, and have some familiarity with the terminology used and be confident in handling materials and equipment.
