Hi Chela,

Thank you so much for this helpful information, I really appreciate
it. It is great to receive the opinions and advice of those in the
guild. I think workshops are a perfect idea for someone like myself
who wants to get a broad understanding of the art.

Thanks again,
Andrea

The cloth case binding workshop, non-adhesive binding workshop and the limp vellum workshop at North Bennet are good basics. Better yet, their three month intensive is potentially a very useful basic intro. The American Academy of Bookbinding has their 2011 course schedule up on the web, and offers some fundamentals courses as well. I am sure you will get advise about others as well.
