ISLAMIC BOOKBINDING I WITH DR SHAHRIYAR PIROOZRAM
Handmaking own tools for use in leather tooling; a selection of the Master’s tools; sharpening the edges; splitting leather; interesting tool seen in the workshop (I think for ceramics!); my very own leather tool.
Splitting the goatskin leather by hand was difficult and requires practice. I managed in the end with patience and perseverance!
It’s lovely to make one’s own tools; I shaped mine to fit snugly into the palm of my hand for ease of working.
Thank you Dr Shahriyar!
