Thank you, Karen Hanmer, for an amazing workshop!

LSC Big Spring workshop: Contemporary Paper Bindings with Karen Hanmer was a success! We spent two days in the Texas A&M Preservations facility watching, learning, and making four beautiful paper bindings. Great space with a genuine Texas view.

The paper bindings included: German Stiffened Paper Binding (using a double-fan adhesive), Paper Case with Adhesive Attachment, Laced Paper Case with Unsupported Sewing, and Long Stitch through a Slotted Paper Cover (with a Yapp edge). We also had a tour of a selection of the Berger Cloonan Special Collection of decorative papers. Beautiful!

Perfect weekend to make books and have fun! Special thanks to Karen Hanmer, Jeanne Goodman, Kevin O’Sullivan, all the workshop participants, and Texas A&M Preservations! HOWDY!

This past weekend was the Lone Star Chapter’s Gold Finishing Workshop with Samuel Feinstein.  It was a whirlwind couple of days but everyone learned a lot.  Thanks again to Samuel for taking the time and for being an excellent instructor.  Thanks also to Bridwell Library for the use of their conservation lab for this workshop.
