|Course:||Bookbinding – Miniatures 1|
|Start Date:||6th May 2020|
|Fee:||£56.00 What's included?|
A small - but perfectly formed - leather bound book. Over the course of the day we will fold and sew sections, add endpapers, round the spine and colour the top edge of a very tiny book before making a case and covering it with leather. If there’s time you might like to tool your initial on the front!
During our work we’ll look at tools and techniques for working on a miniature scale. There will be a charge of £5-6 payable to the tutor on the day for materials. Some tools will be available to purchase during the workshops.
In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
