Rounded and backed book

intermediate bookbinding

This six-session or two-day intermediate bookbinding course builds on basic skills you already have or those learned on the beginner bookbinding course. Your bookbinding knowledge will be consolidated as you master sewing multi-signature books with a French link stitch and revisit the kettle stitch and weavers knot introduced in the beginner’s course. You will perfect your measuring and cutting skills and learn how to prepare a book block for rounding and backing. The secrets of how to make a paperback or perfect binding will be revealed and you will also learn how to construct a simple photo album. To keep your precious book examples safe you will finish by making a slipcase that perfectly houses your collection of example books, which you will be able to refer back to.
