ISLAMIC BOOKBINDING I

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!
