Book repair - cloth bindings

Various styles of books to suit all tastes.


Following on from my make a book course, this is an opportunity to explore the repair of old books. BUT please only work on a book of little or no value for starting out. It should be a cloth binding where the cover is coming off or the front board is loose. If you are stuck I can send you a book that you can work on from my collection. For your own book please send me photos of the book and dimensions so that I can match up some cloth for you.

What's included in the price?

2 hour lesson on book repair with some repair materials sent on to you.

What you will need

10a scalpel with handle, a cutting mat, bone folder, greaseproof paper, Albany wallpaper paste, PVA
