Book Decoration Day
Exploring the Bindery
Code:AT2508 DATE: Sunday 25th August 2013
Tutors: John Turner and Adrienne Allen
Fee: $65 for members; $95 for non-members includes 6 months membership, materials included.
Our bindery is home to a wonderful range of finishing equipment. You have probably seen the blocking presses but we also have a collection of antique hand tools for you to try out in a relaxed atmosphere.
The class will be divided into two groups and John will show how to use the blocking presses and handled tools. Adrienne will show how to colour and decorate edges, and demonstrate fore edge painting which you will then be able to try out on paperbacks trimmed in the guillotine. At lunchtime the groups will rotate.
There will also be demonstrations of simple book cloth onlays and using a soldering iron as a free hand gildng tool.
Items to Bring: Lunch, 2 paperbacks, knife, ruler, pencil, apron etc
Tea and coffee provided
John is available on his rostered Sundays to help with further use of the blocking press.
