Leather Binding Fundamentals

Begin the day with a pre-sewn text block and leave with the skills to complete a quarter-leather case binding! This workshop focuses on basic leather edge-paring with a knife and fundamental skills for working with paste and leather. Participants have the opportunity to play with blind tooling on sample maquettes and to pare leather scraps on a Scharf-fix. Depending on individual work flow, some participants may complete the binding during the workshop and others may complete the work at home with provided materials, handouts, and a day of practice.
