Even though the slipcase is the simplest type of the box used on book conservation, it can be very versatile and it is very quick to make.

In this one day workshop participants will bring a cherished book and will learn how to construct 2 types of cases: one piece cardstock slipcase and a covered cardboard slipcase.

NOTE: Book/material limit size: 20x25 cm

Fabiana Mattos Salvador has worked with design and development of objects made with cardboard and covered by fabric (the technique called cartonnage) since 2005. “I enjoy the endless possibilities of mixing materials and techniques to create unique pieces. I’ve also been teaching some of my projects which gives me the opportunity to share what I discovered during my work and meet great people who love handmade products and techniques.”
