Secret Belgian Binding - Three Ways
North Bennet Street School
150 North Street, Boston, MA
This workshop explores the Secret Belgian structure and ways to modify it. On day one, students put together two variations of this non-adhesive structure: one with exposed stitches and one with hidden stitches. On day two, students explore modified versions of the Secret Belgian binding developed by book artist, Anne Goy by playing with the length of stitching and incorporating Tyvek. The Secret Belgian binding can be constructed quickly with few tools and virtually no equipment. It opens flat and works best with thinner text blocks.
Please bring a notebook with you to class. All tools and supplies are provided for this class.
Saturday, September 14 & Sunday, September 15, 8:30am-4:30pm. Instructor: Erin Fletcher BB '12.
