Kort op die hakke van ʼn hoogs suksesvolle inleidende kursus oor die herstel van boeke, bied die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument (ATM) in die Paarl weer ʼn kursus, met die fokus op gevorderde tegnieke soos leerbind- en bladgoudwerk, vanaf 28 tot 30 Oktober 2019 aan. Die boekherstelspesialis George Wentzel se kursus is geskik vir beginners én deelnemers wat reeds basiese boek- en papierherstelwerk onder die knie het. Wentzel, 'n gekwalifiseerde meesterboekbinder met meer as 45 jaar se ondervinding, het voorheen in die Nasionale Biblioteek van Suid-Afrika se boekbewaringsafdeling gewerk. Sy passie is om hierdie skaars vaardigheid te onderrig en hy het al meer as 40 rampbestuur- en boekbindwerkwinkels oor die land aangebied.

Tydens die tweetalige driedagkursus sal deelnemers onder meer drie boeke maak, Solanderbokse bou, stikwerk van bladsye doen en baie meer oor boekherstelwerk leer. Ingesluit is basiese konsepte, werksprosedures asook demonstrasies van en praktiese oefeninge in skutblaaie, boekbindwerk, leerbindwerk, omhulsel afronding en bladrugsteun.

Die kursus kos R1 750 per persoon wat ʼn sertifikaat van bywoning en ʼn stel basiese gereedskap insluit. Dit vind daagliks van 09:00 tot 16:00 in die Besoekersentrum se konferensielokaal by die by die Taalmonument plaas. Koffie en tee is ingesluit, maar deelnemers moet vir hul eie middagete sorg of van die koffiewinkel gebruik maak.

“Dit was professioneel, pret en uitstekend,” het een deelnemer, Elsette Strachan, rakende die inleidende kursus in Julie 2019 gesê. “Ek het veral die praktiese sessies geniet en ʼn nuwe vaardigheid verkry,” het ʼn ander deelnemer, Slindokuhle Tshisevhe, bygevoeg. Die 16 deelnemers het almal vir Wentzel uitgesonder as ʼn besonder dinamiese en plesierige aanbieder.

Hard on the heels of a highly successful introductory course on book restoration, the Afrikaans Language Museum and Monument (ATM) in Paarl once again offers a course focusing on advanced techniques such as leather binding and gold-foiling from 28 to 30 October 2019. Book repair specialist George Wentzel's course is suitable for beginners AND participants who have already acquired the basics of book and paper conservation. Wentzel, a qualified master bookbinder with over 45 years of experience, previously worked in the National Library of South Africa’s book conservation section; his passion is teaching this scarce skill, and he has conducted over 40 disaster management and bookbinding workshops all over the country.

During the three-day, bilingual course participants will amongst others create three books each, construct Solander boxes, sew flat sheets and learn a lot more about repairing books. Included are basic concepts, working procedures as well as demonstrations of and practical exercises in end papering, binding, leather binding, casing rounding and backing.

The course fee, including a certificate of attendance and basic tool kit, is R1 750 per person and the workshop takes place from 09:00 to 16:00 daily in the Visitor Centre’s conference room at the Taalmonument. Tea and coffee are included, but participants must bring their own lunch or make use of the coffee shop.

“It was professional, fun and excellent,” said one participant, Elsette Strachan, regarding the introductory course in July 2019. “I especially enjoyed the practical sessions and have gained a new skill,” added another participant, Slindokuhle Tshisevhe. The 16 participants all pointed out that Wentzel is a dynamic and pleasant presenter.
