Variations on the Simple Accordion Binding with Rebecca Gilbert

Saturday, May 19, 2018

In this workshop we'll start by making a simple accordion (concertina) binding with attached covers. Then we'll make a sewn multi-section binding that uses a modified accordion structure as the basis. If time permits, we'll begin a third binding. You'll quickly see that once you learn the basic concertina fold, there are countless ways to modify it in order to create new book structures.

Materials will be supplied and tools will be available for use by participants, but if you have a cutting mat, bone folder, or X-Acto blade of your own, please bring it along with you to the workshop.
