Tue-Mouche Binding with Embroidered Covers

September 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am September 25, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Instructor: Erin Fletcher 

Days & Dates: Mondays, September 18 & 25, 2023 

Time: Pacific time, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., with classroom doors open at 8:45 AM

Venue: SDBA’s Zoom Account, to be recorded with recording access provided for one month following class, or the last class within a series—for registrants only, password protected, not downloadable and only shared with class registrants.

Skill Level: All

Class Description: Translated to “flypaper”, the Tue-Mouche was developed by bookbinder Ben Elbel. The Tue-Mouche is an easy and economical form of bookbinding and perfect for all skill levels. The covers are constructed entirely from heavyweight paper, layered to create rigidity and strength, while the flexible spine allows the binding to open without constraints. In this workshop students will learn how to create the Tue-Mouche binding from start to finish in addition to ways of embellishing the cover through embroidery.

Class Fees: Early Enrollment Program (EEP): $160 Member: $200 Non-member $275

Materials Fee: The SDBA class price includes the materials fee and shipping costs of $26. Students will provide their own tools and set up supplies, which will be covered in the time sensitive SDBA Welcome Letter.

International Shipping: We adore our worldwide community of book artists! Please, we ask for your awareness that increased costs for International Shipping must be covered by the registrant, and paid directly to SDBA. Each individual will be notified of the extra amounts due.
