Day one of cloth binding class!

Today we had the first day of a five day book binding class.  It was a fun day.  It's gratifying to hear the students at the end of the day express amazement of how much we covered.  Today they forwarded a flat back binding.  Next week we'll make the covers for them and start on rounded and backed bindings.

I'm quite happy that we've gotten to this point, it's been a long time coming.  First we had to finish building the house and then turning this:

Doing all that work made a class like this possible.  And so here are the students working away in a truly great space..

Does any bindery have a nicer lunch room than this?  I think not!

I'm very much looking forward to next week!
