This is an historical bookbinding technique attributed to Belgium. It was rediscovered in contemporary times. This technique is called “secret” as its binding structure is very difficult to discern. This technique stands alone as a very unique bookbinding technique … unlike any other historical European Bookbinding.
No prior experience is necessary. All materials and tools will be supplied. Please bring note taking materials.

She is affiliated with the local chapter of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG). She has been teaching bookbinding for over 10 years. Her interest in bookbinding started with her fascination with the wide range of materials and structures involved in binding books.
