This workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the different types of leather and paring techniques used in bookbinding. This course is designed to be an adjunct to Bookbinding 3 (course 2017WKSP-03 beginning Sunday, Jan 14, at the CBBAG bindery).  It is also a very useful refresher on leather paring for students looking to improve their bench skills.

Betsy Palmer Eldridge apprenticed as a bookbinder in Hamburg, Germany, studied finishing with Jules Fache in Paris, and worked in conservation with Carolyn Horton and Associates in New York in the 60s. She has had her own Studio in Toronto since 1975, and has taught courses and workshops in bookbinding and conservation since in 1984. She has been active in professional organizations both nationally and internationally.
