The Leather Intensive
This six-day workshop is not on the schedule.
Please contact Daniel if you are interested in this being offered.
This is the binding you will make in the workshop.
You will tie silk endbands.
Your book will have leather joints reinforced by fabric sewn into the text block.
You will sew your book on tapes using a sewing frame.
And Daniel will show you how to make your own simple sewing frame for future use in your own studio.
Sewing the endband is one of the pleasures of this project.
You will learn to use a manual paring machine to thin your leather down to the appropriate thickness.
In addition, you will be introduced to paring with a knife.
Here’s Daniel evaluating how his book is coming along.
