A workshop based on Carmencho Arregui’s Crossed Structure Binding technique. Cristina Balbiano, close friend and working partner with Carmencho, has taken the technique further and developed an 8th variation which is included in the workshop. She collaborates with Cor Aerssens, a true master in box making, and the two of them form an interesting and skilled duo.
This intensive course is divided into two parts. Part One deals with eight different variations of Crossed Structure Binding. Participants will make eight sample books with blank pages and covers of handmade paper. In between Parts One and Two, one day of no classes is planned, in order to give participants time to rest and think about the technique. During Part Two, participants will have hands-on experience binding real books with leather or vellum covers.
The goal of the workshop is to learn the basic techniques involved in Crossed Structure Binding. As well, participants will learn to discern which structure is better suited for each book to be bound.
The workshop takes place in Stockholm, April 10-16, 2010. It will be given in English with support in Italian, French, German and Dutch. For more information contact Helene Jouper, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, ph. +46 (0)73 73 555 44, www.bokbindarkompetens.se
