If you have never take a bookbinding class before, this is the class for you. This is a short course covering the basic bookbinding skills: an introduction to cloth and paper covers.
Starting at the very beginning, you will learn about paper grain, cutting, fold- ing, making and sewing the signature to create a pamphlet binding. From there you will move on to multi signature sewing and binding. You will use materials and tools safely, appropriately, avoiding unnecessary waste. learning techniques, tricks and habits that will prepare you to progress to the next level or to continue on your own. You will produce a variety of book struc- tures and more in this introductory course

If members could please email us if you are planning to attend
Future dates for Bindery Open Days are as follows:
There will be two Committee members on each day to assist you in the use of equipment if required and to help you with any particular aspect of a project you may want some direction on.
If you have something you need help with, let us know when you email us re your attendance and we will endeavour to have someone there who can help you.
Please remember that you will not be able to purchase materials, board or other equipment on these days. You will have to use the Open Days and General Meeting for this purpose. You will need to BYO whatever materials you will need.
This is a wonderful new initiative; we have never before had the opportunity for you to work at projects and use equipment in this way. Please support it. We have invested a lot in setting up our room for use by you, and providing training so you can have some assistance.
We also hope that these days will provide members with the time to come together in a social, more informal setting than the meeting days, to swap ideas and support each other.
