Re: Teaching Workshops

I'm in the final stages of planning a basic book repair workshop this
summer.  It is to be a half-day session.  I'd like some input as to
content.  I have, of course, ideas as to what can be realistically covered
in such a short format but would like ideas as to what not to miss.  I have
glossary, equipment/supplies list, and short descriptive sheets for each

The emphasis will be on quick, easy, inexpensive repairs.  Not meant for
rare or special collections items.

Thanks for you input,
