2015 The Engram Saturdays

Basic tooling; working with gouges and pallets.

6 Saturdays from 14h00 till 18h00.
October 10, 17, 24 and November 7, 14, 21.

Putting that tooling is a difficult discipline is as much as stating the obvious.
This, together with the considerable cost of the tools, are for many binder “the" 2 most important reasons to leave their binding “unfinished".

Therefore we worked out a program where you learn how to work gouges and pallets.
We choose these because they form the base of the tooling discipline and form an affordable part of a tooling collection.

With a maximum of 4 students we learn blind tooling, how to make carbon and “soot"prints with gouges and pallets. During the exercises we provide you with our tips & tricks.
Plaques and practice blocks covered with sheep, calf and goat leather are at the students disposal.

Each student also has the disposal of a set of gouges and pallets.
No foreknowledge required.

Price (incl. materials and V.A.T.)
