Book Binding

We were recently introduced to book binding and were taught how to bind books through stitch. I found it be quite a fun workshop and one that will come in useful in the future. I also think that there is something nice about handmade books. It was also useful learning a technique to bind a book, especially as we may need to bind books for upcoming projects.

Nevertheless, it was a useful and enjoyable workshop to have had and I can this being used in the future. We were introduced to new tools such as a folding bone, a paring knife and a hole punching cradle.

This is the outcome and overall I am generally pleased with the result. I do think with more practice the quality will improve.
