Tools and supplies
Thank you everyone that came out last Thursday night for Tish's Leather Bookbinding
workshop. This is the first time that I've personally taken a workshop and have to say
that I left enlightened and curious to learning more about the art of bookbinding. Firstly,
PARCHMENT PAPER - had absolutely no idea how durable and important this material
and craft is to history, basically everything. And, had no clue that most books were bound
with goat leather, not cow leather. So many things to learn.. Anyway, hope everyone had
a nice time and huge thanks again to Tish for another great workshop.
