Stub Bindings (coursecode: MW-01-18), 1 place open

Thursday 05- Saturday 07 April 2018

A book sewn on stubs has many benefits, including:
- a flat opening
- ideal solution for texts printed with the wrong grain direction
- the opportunity to play with colour and form in the stub itself
- the use of different sized sections within one binding or even altering text-to-cover ratio
- the answer to rounding and backing very thick sections
- its adaptability for use with all binding structures
- adding a single section is no problem anymore
- good for conservation purposes

It's an intensive and very exciting way of working and so beautiful….

The first two days students will learn several variations and the many applications for stub binding.
You will go home with a lot of models with different ways of sewing on stubs.
On day three we will make the ‘Cannelure book’.
Beauty is in the detail. 

The pictures below show a few different ways of using stubs.
Combination with a longstitch, combination with a Dos Rapporte and a combination of a one sectionbinding with sewn boards/a concertina,/a part of a Hedi Kyle structure.
The last book is a small concertina with fortified folds.
