Let's start off the first workshop of 2020 with this versatile binding taught by Dianne Byington. Apparently there are numerous variations and different names for this binding (Dianne found six). To add to our skills and techniques we will make an exposed-hinge cover, concealed-hinge cover, narrow and wide paper hinge pins, flat wooden hinge pin, insert and adhere an extra page for memorabilia or ephemera, AND make a hinge binding strip out of Canson Mi-Teints, Fabriano Tiziano, Tyvek, or 65+ lb cardstock.

Basic book with hinge & pin variations.

Flamboyant variations are within the realm of possibility.

Materials to bring:

  • Double-sided tape, any size from 1/4" to 1" wide
  • 4 pieces of cardstock for pages, any colors: 4 1/4" (or taller) x 11" folded in half to size 4 1/4" (or taller) x 5 1/2"
