This session will cover good techniques and safety for using bindery tools and equipment, including board shears, presses, cleaning brushes, and more. To reinforce these skills and practice using some of this equipment, we will make single signature and double signature pamphlets. Attendees will gain comfort in using common bookbinding tools, and everyone will leave with two finished pamphlet books!
