STAMPING & TOOL MAINTENANCE
NOVEMBER 18 – 22, 2019 | PETER GERATY
This course is an amalgamation of two very disparate, yet highly necessary, skills for the book worker. It begins with three days of demonstration and practice in the use of stamping, foils, leaf, blind stamping, jigs, over-stamping, multiple colors and more in the decoration of bindings.
Shifting gears, the students are then guided through two days detailing the appropriate maintenance and sharpening of tools. Students learn to adjust board cutters, presses and guillotines, and how to sharpen their knives and shape their own tools allowing more confidence in taking care of their equipment.
