Workshop Content                     

Facilitated by Lynn Swannell                    

Learn how to keep your books looking good for longer using a variety of covering materials. Using simple repair techniques give old favourites a new lease on life.

This is a hands-on workshop using library-specific covering and mending materials led by school library professionals. We will share ideas and approaches to covering and discuss the various ways schools address covering decisions. 

                                                                                                                                                                                       All covering materials supplied.

We will also have a short session on basic folding to create sculptures and display elements from old books.
