People have been using bone for so long that they have an almost genetic attraction to it.  In this workshop we will shape and polish elk and deer bone to make tools and/or art. Those who want can make awl handles and then choose a point that Jim will set in the handle. He will teach sharpening if anyone wants.
Bring: Tools you would like to show and light work gloves.

Wooden Board, Textile Spine Longstitch with Jim Croft
Sunday, April 7, 2013
University of the Arts, 333 South Broad St.
Philadelphia, Room 632. (6th floor bindery)
10am to 4pm
$100 DVC members
$125 Non-members
$30 materials fee, to be collected at the workshop
A textile spine is strong, flexible and doesn’t care how many holes you punch into it.  Using wood for covers results in a quickly made, durable book.  To make it, you need only a bone folder, thread, needle, and maybe an awl.  The book can be made with a rounded spine that has a natural shoulder, if desired.
Class will begin by sewing into a pre-made case.  Later, students can make their own case, even splitting their boards.  Or the student can start with covers already cut to size that will only need final shaping.
Copy paper will be provided. Or bring your own 4½ x 5½ sections, approximately one inch thick.
