Historic Sugartown Town – Bookbinding Workshop Weekend

Sat, March 21 @ 9:00 am - Sun, March 22 @ 3:00 pm

(CANCELLED) Immerse yourself in the art of bookbinding in Historic Sugartown’s Book Bindery. Colonial Williamsburg- trained instructor, Ramon Townsend of ColonialBindery.com, will lead the class through the entire binding process in this two-day workshop weekend. Surrounded by a world-class collection of 19th century bookbinding tools, participants will create an 8-signature, fully leather-bound blank book using traditional methods employed from the first century through the mid-19th century. They will hand-sew the book sections

(called signatures); secure the cover boards; sew a headband across the top and bottom of the spine, perform rounding and backing of the spine; add a full leather cover, and lay down beautifully hand-marbled endpapers provided for them. Along with their book, participants will also be provided step-by-step written instructions they can take home.

Workshop Admission: $175/ Participant, all supplies included. Ages 14 & Up. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The workshop will take place from 9AM – 3PM, on both days. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 6 participants.
