What's Included

This course explores basic methods of book restoration and conservation as well as the reasons for performing, or not performing, conservation treatments. Each student will bring four or more books needing repair. The class will work together to determine the best treatment options for these books while also considering the ethics of performing those treatments. As students perform the work, they will learn about appropriate materials, adhesives used by conservators, and the tools of the trade such as the use of Japanese paper and linen. Students will complete a minimum of two binding treatments by the week’s end. No prerequisite is required for this class, but experience in bookbinding is helpful. This class is open to all levels of bookbinders.
