Library 136: Class starts the last Saturday in June on the 26 and goes through August 7, skipping the 4th of July weekend. Meeting times are 9:00 am to 3:30 pm
You will learn: A bit about the history of binding and types of binding. The parts of a book, their function and in what way these parts work together. We practice analyzing how and why a book fell apart, what repairs to use in specific situations. Basic repairs you will learn and practice are tears, spine, corners, hinge, adding end sheets, attaching a new supper's, spine linings, dry cleaning and how to sew a signature. You will also learn to use mending equipment, tools and materials. Another project we will do is turning a paperback book into a hardback.
This is a FUN class and the time will just fly's by. Knowing these basic book repairs will save money, and extend the circulations on your books. Below is the link.
Please call me if you have any questions 253-797-5058
They tend to cancel classes early these days so I recommend you sign up quickly.
