Sat, Oct/Sep __, 2017, 10-1pm, Tacket Bookbinding with Suzan Lee. Learn to make a leather bound book using an historical thread wrapping technique that’s attributed to 101-200 AD in Egypt. This technique results in “thread coils” or sometimes described as “sausages”. Intrigued? $60 CBBAG Members, $75 NonMembers. To register, please send us an email. Your payment will reserve a spot in class. Registration closes a week prior to workshop.

Sat, Oct/Sep __, 2017, 2-5pm, Secret Belgian Bookbinding with Suzan Lee. This bookbinding structure was rediscovered in our lifetime by Hedi Kyle, a world renowned bookbinder. The binding technique is very unusual and curiously satisfying. $60 CBBAG Members, $75 NonMembers. To register, please send us an email. Your payment will reserve a spot in class. Registration closes a week prior to workshop.
