Bookbinding & Making Metalwork Book Fittings:

We offer working demonstrations of early book binding techniques showing the development of the book from the Roman period through to the variety of medieval bindings alongside metalwork demonstrations showing the making of book clasps, corners & fittings.

See how methods developed to deal with the new inventions of paper and printing and the increasing numbers of books wanted. Watch the ‘book furniture’ (hinges clasps and corners) being decorated, the sewing frame being used, and all the various materials used to make a book.
