Course Detail: C_SECRETBINDING - Secret Belgian Binding - Two Ways with Erin Fletcher, Herringbone Bindery
This workshop will explore the Secret Belgian binding (also known as Criss Cross binding) and ways to modify it. The binding is simple and easy to construct; it opens flat and is perfect for smaller text blocks. Students will complete two versions of the structure; one bound in the traditional sense and the second will offer a bit more secrecy and refinement to the structure.
