July 2 A&S Night Bookbinding

Greetings!  Join us for this monthly, informal gathering where we work on A & S projects together.  Come with your own project or learn something new!  Dress is modern.

Tuesday, July 2, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

The home of Baroness Hedewigis, 1604 Old Wilmington Road, Hockessin, DE 19707.

All are welcome!  Come learn basic bookbinding skills from Baroness Mari and make yourself a small booklet that you can use for class notes while you’re at Pennsic War (or any other event where you take classes).

Want to make a book at home? Download the tutorial on making a soft-covered Coptic Book (a handout from a class taught during a past Pennsic War).

Two options:

1) Learn the basics using a less expensive paper and cardboard booklet ($2 material fee), or

2) Make a small leather book ($12 material fee).  This book takes a bit of time and so your book may not be complete before the end of the workshop.

Note on Tools:  Neither of the material fees include the tools you need make a book.  While we’ll have a few tools to share, you might want to look into purchasing your own tools.  We suggest something like this 15 Piece Bookbinding Starter Tools Kit available from Amazon and other suppliers.

Baroness Hedewigis hosts an A&S Night on the first Tuesday of every month starting at 7:00 pm.  Contact Baroness Hedewigis 302-239-9787 if you have trouble getting to her home, which is a red barn.  Carpooling to the site is highly encouraged.
