Book Arts Workshop: Hand Sewn Headbands

In this workshop, Jennifer Hain Teper, Conservation Librarian for the UIUC Library, will teach participants to hand sew two to three models of headbands: a traditional plain double headband, a silk headband with a single bead on the front edge and a French double headband, if time allows. Workshop attendees will use prepared second-hand books as models, or may bring their own unbound, sewn book on which to sew their headbands. Needles, leather and hemp cords, as well as colored silk and undyed linen threads will be provided. Class size is limited to 12. Location:
