Event description
Limp Vellum Binding - Try your hand at working with vellum with CBBAG Ottawa instructor Bronwen Glover

About this Event

This elegant historic structure was used at least as early as the 14th Century and was most popular in the 16th and 17th Centuries. It is very versatile and can be a simple and attractive binding when made with modern materials as well.

Students will have the opportunity to make a small limp covered binding in real vellum. In this class, we will practice sewing on raised, alum-tawed supports, which will be laced into the cover. Interesting variations and decorative additions will be discussed and the students can customize the books as time allows.

These books are easily re-created at home with minimal equipment.

Bring your lunch and any tools you may have. If you have a Japanese screw punch or other punch to make small holes that would be helpful but will also be available at the workshop if not. If you have no tools, no worries, we will supply tools for you during the workshop.

$70 for CBBAG members

$80 for non-members

All materials are supplied for a fee of $30.00, payable to the instructor the day of the workshop.
