Throughout the centuries, headbands have stood proud as the tiniest, yet often most important, detail of a well bound book. Their purposes and form have changed, but the role as an integral part of a book has not. They allow the binder a way to add a small appearance of a dramatic color to a binding, or a way to accent a particular color theme. In this class, we will learn several basic styles of modern woven silk headbands and historical styles made with a linen base. We will also discuss different ways of anchoring them on a textblock, and see many historical variations.  

Materials to Bring: Needles of various sizes small gauge awl magnifying glasses or reading glasses, if you use them.

Past Student Reviews:

“I love how the Center seems to be starting to offer more classes on small facets of bookmaking that there simply isn't much time to go into in detail in classes where you learn a structure from start to finish. I appreciate the opportunity to really focus on one little facet and go into details.”

“Juliayn's classes are always great. She's patient, good at demonstrating and explaining, and you can tell she really cares about her students learning things properly.”

“I loved the instructor's enthusiasm about the topic, the personal examples she displayed as well as the history that was imparted to us about each style we learned as well as for headbands in general.”
