Sün Evrard, leather collage (course code: SE-01-18), 1 place open

Wednesday 16 -Saturday 19 May 2018

A second masterclass in Blokker from one of the most famous bookbinders in France, Sün Evrard.
She is a great teacher who wants to share her knowledge with the participants.
Because she is only teaching twice a year it's a chance that you should not miss!

Different techniques of assemble pieces of leather will be taught.
These collages can be used as onlays, inlays or as covering material.
The collaged leather can also be combined with paper and fabric to create subtle and unusual textures.

Sün uses this technique on all types of bindings- traditional, flexible, and the unconventional.
Even the paper sides of a half binding can be enriched by the addition of collage to turn it into a full leather binding.

Participants should prepare (or at least have in mind) real bookbinding projects for existing books( max. A5 size).
The aim of the workshop is not to finish these bindings during the masterclass. 
Sün’s careful and methodical tutoring will ensure that everyone leaves with a full understanding of this process and the ability to use it on their own in the future.

Only for experienced binders.
