Conservation courses in Telluride April, 2013

Repair, Restore or Conserve?  Introduction to Binding Treatments
April 15-19, 2013
Chris McAfee

    This course explores basic methods of book restoration and
    conservation as well as the reasons for performing, or not
    performing, conservation treatments.  Each student will bring
    four or more books needing repair.  The class will work together
    to determine the best treatment options for these books while
    also considering the ethics of performing those treatments.  As
    students perform the work, they will learn about appropriate
    materials, adhesives used by conservators, and the tools of the
    trade such as the use of Japanese paper and linen.  Students
    will complete a minimum of two binding treatments by the week's
    end.  No prerequisite is required for this class, but experience
    in bookbinding is helpful.  This class is open to all levels of
    bookbinders and is a required course for the Diploma Program.

Sewing Structures
April 22-26, 2013
Brenda Parsons

    The workshop will concentrate on various methods of sewing that
    will include link stitch and sewing on single and double cords
    using herringbone or "all along" sewing.  Sewing using a
    concertina guard will be practiced.  Various styles of endpapers
    will be constructed and attached to the textblocks.
    Participants will practice the various sewing structures on
    models and will leave with a nice reference library of sewing
    structures. Students interested in pursuing the Diploma Program
    should have 3 textblocks for sewing and endpaper attachment, and
    the books should not be more than one inch thick and 12 inches
    tall.  The textblock needs to be treated in advance.  This a
    required class in the Diploma Program and is open to students
    who have taken the paper conservation class or have equivalent

Financial assistance available.  Applications for spring financial
assistance due March 1, 2013.
