Historical Sewing Sampler II: Supported Sewings

In this one-day workshop, students will learn to sew over a dozen historic supported sewing styles on a single book. We’ll begin by sewing over cord, alum taw, and split leather. In this portion, we’ll experiment with both raised and recessed supports, as well as packing and sewing variants, in order to better understand the relationship between structure and materials as it relates to efficiency and productivity.

Next, we’ll cover later styles such as sewing over tapes and Ramieband, including decorative variants, and discuss in depth the history of binding and the timeline of developments that gave rise to each sewing style.

Sunday, October 21 from 9 am to 4 pm. There is a $25 materials fee
