Book Binding Workshop with Lesha Shaver!

The Secret Belgian Binding

Instructor: Lesha Shaver

Cost: $70 (all materials included)

Date: Saturday, April 2, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Fayetteville Underground

Level: Beginners welcome

Book artist Hedi Kyle is credited with rediscovering this historic binding. It uses an exposed sewing to bind the text block to cover boards and a spine, with the spine held in place only by the thread that is sewn over and under it. In addition to it being a very lovely book to look at, it's considered a very sturdy binding. This is a great alternative to a traditional hard-bound book.
