Date: Wednesday, August 14, 2024

Time: PT, 9 AM – 11AM; classroom doors open at 8:50 AM

Class Description:
In this session, students will learn the basic layout of the Cross Structure binding by exploring 2 different sewing methods and 2 ways of weaving the covers together.

The Cross Structure binding is a non-adhesive binding that offers much freedom to the text block. These 20th century designs created by Carmencho Arregui are greatly inspired by the Long Stitch bindings of the medieval era. It is suitable in conservation or new bindings, such as travel journals or decorative bindings. The structure is uniquely constructed by interlocking the front and back cover at the spine. 

Tools & Supplies: To be announced in SDBA Welcome Letter, approximately 2 weeks prior to class
