The official time for work in the workshop is between 9-16 - but everyone is so interested and dedicated so we are in the workshop between 8-22 - times flies and we are so happy.
Happy happy happy
This year's theme was Gothic bookbinding.
Medieval bookbinding is interesting - but I do not know if I always like the results. I don´t like the metal buckles (bling bling). Mine buckles are extremely ugly, I made them very quickly - as you can se on the result.
On Friday I had some spare time and made a miniature limp binding of waste pieces of leather.
When you are in Leksand you go Linda Gimle and Djura Bok & Pappersverkstad. Linda's paper and bookbinding shop is fantastic. It´s always incredibly fun to visit the shop and you get both inspiration and energy. If you can´t visit the shop you can visit her internet shop.
