Parchment Bookbinding

Instructor: Suzan Lee
Location(s): Vancouver
Topic(s): Mixed/Other Media
October 6, 2017

Parchment (or vellum), although expensive, was the primary material in bookbinding until recently. New technology in textile and paper introduced economical options for bookbinders, and therefore reserved parchment for the wealthy who could afford its superior look and feel. Students will use this beautiful, rich material to complete a parchment-stitched book to take home.

No prior experience is necessary. All materials and tools will be provided. Please bring supplies for note taking.
