Subject: Masterclass on Ethiopic bindings

Masterclass on Ethiopic bindings

From: Mehboob Mohamed <mehboob.mohamed<-a>
Date: Friday, December 21, 2007
The British Library is pleased to announce the first in its new
series of Masterclasses. The first course: Ethiopic Bindings will
take place 25-29 February 2008 and will cost UKP550. The week long
course--run by John Mumford, Head of Book Conservation at the
BL--will give an introduction to the history of Ethiopic Binding.
Through a series of practical demonstrations and exercises
participants will gain an understanding of the construction of an
Ethiopic binding within a cultural and historical context. Reference
will be made to the conservation of historical Ethiopic bindings.
Some knowledge of the history of bookbinding would be desirable but
is not essential.

This course is aimed at book conservators and participants are
expected to already have skills in book structures.

Places are limited in order to provide close supervision and maximum
opportunities for discussion and interaction.

For further details please contact Alison Faraday

Further masterclasses at the British Library will be announced in
January 2008 and booking details will be posted on our website.
