5 weeks of mini master classes in Design Binding

Over the last few weeks I have been giving what has turned out to be a series of one day master classes in Fine Contemporary Design Binding.
The beauty of working with individual students or student is that as a teacher it is possible to give the time that is necessary for the student to understand and apply new techniques and methods.

I have enjoyed the process, from exploring print to sewing, rounding and backing, right up to the finished book. The learning curve for the student has been steep and not always easy-going but the end result will result in a piece of work that has stretched and expanded the skills and understanding of the student.
