With new health precautions in place, Historic Sugartown is excited to continue offering in-person workshops. Workshops are limited to 4 participants to maintain social distancing. All participants and instructors are required to wear masks. New health precaution information can be found at HistoricSugartown.org.
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, our 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 9AM – 3PM. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 4 participants. Visit HistoricSugartown.org or call 610-640-2667 to register!
