Leather is without a doubt the finest bookbinding material but its natural grain can have a somewhat conservative feel and look, not necessarily suited to contemporary work. In this one day workshop you will learn how to create rich and interesting patterns and textures onto suede leather, which can then be used as a covering material. No experience required.
