This two-day workshop is a compact little introduction to some effective workarounds for finishing your cloth and leather bindings.

Nothing high risk here- no gold leaf will be harmed in these exercises- but you will see how to produce convincing inlays, onlays, gold lines and labels, using coloured foils, the Scharfix, and your basic hand tools.

You'll be surprised at what you can do!
