      Participants will be taught basic book repair techniques, and in the process learn about the book's components and traditional hand bookbinding methods. They will dissect a book and reassemble it. Participants will deconstruct the book by detaching the covers and spine; removing the sewing, and disassembling the text. They will then reconstruct their book by performing page repair; resewing the text; and rehinging the covers and spine.

      The book along with all additional materials are included, and tools will be provided.

      Cost per Person: $100/Adult (Age 14 and Up).

      Participants are welcome to bring their own book to restore but must get pre-approval.
