Two-day masterclass springback led by Wim Gremmen

Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July 2022

The name springback should be taken literally.
The spine of this binding ensures that the book really pops open when opened.
A springback is a binding method in which the book lies completely flat.
Springbacks are easy to recognize; they are often very round, have thick boards and a thick back.
That's why they look very clumpsy.
This binding method is often used with register books because it is possible to write over two pages.
Not suitable for beginners.

Costs: € 275,- incl. coffee/tea, luch and materials
Location: Boekbindcentrum Echten
Time: Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tine Noreille's special measuring, folding and cutting technique is now well known.

The bindings open completely flat and have a nice design.
They are ideal books for artists, photographers, calligraphers and all creative people.

The masterclass is for both beginners and experienced binders.

Two-day masterclass paste paper led by Susanne Krause
Paste paper from scratch: The historical basic techniques and their free use.

Friday September 2nd and Saturday September 3rd 2022 - FULL - with waiting list

Although (or just because) paste paper is deceptively simple, it has survived all the fashions since the 17th century.
In the masterclass the four basic techniques for all historical and contemporary patterns are introduced and practised.
In the next step they can be varied freely in all styles conceivable. Just like in the workshops of old there will be no special tools or expensive materials.
And no secrets. In addition to practical work there will be an extended exercise in understanding and ‘reading‘ patterns with the help of original papers.

The language will be English en een beetje Nederlands
Costs: € 287,50 incl. coffee/tea & lunch
Location: Boekbindcentrum Echten
Time: Friday from 9.30 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 9.30 am to 3 pm with an extension until 5 pm
