MALVERN, PA — Learn basic book repair techniques, and in the process learn about a book’s components and traditional hand-bookbinding methods in Historic Sugartown’s Bindery.
In response to popular demand, Historic Sugartown’s own Colonial Williamsburg-trained instructor, Ramon Townsend, has developed a workshop that explores the techniques of book restoration.
Participants will dissect a book and reassemble it. They will deconstruct a book by detaching the covers and spine, removing the sewing, and disassembling the text. Then, participants will reconstruct the book by performing page repair, re-sewing the text and re-hinging the covers and spine.
The book, materials and supplies are provided. All skill levels are welcome.
Workshop Admission: $100/ Participant, all supplies included. Ages 18 & Up.
The workshop will take place from 9 AM – 3 PM. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 4 participants. Visit HistoricSugartown.org or call 610-640-2667 to register.
