Torn to Tidy: Repair of Cloth Bindings Workshop taught by Andrew Huot

April 8 & 9, 2017, 9:00 – 4:30 at the Long Beach Museum of Art

During the 19th century, cloth was substituted for leather as an inexpensive binding material, and it is still used in commercial binding today. Many of these books have developed tears and breaks through repeated use. This workshop will focus on techniques for repairing cloth bindings at their weakest points: corners, head and tail, joints, and shoulders; and restoring them to use. These techniques are ideal for circulating and reference collections. Practice books will be provided, but items can be brought from home or work as pieces for discussion and developing repair strategies.
