Event description

Description

Explore the world of stitched bindings and learn to make your own books. In this workshop you’ll learn how to make a simple book and be introduced to different binding techniques such as Japanese stab binding. You’ll also begin your own unique book project from recycled papers and found materials.

Bookmaking is both a contemporary and traditional craft, useful to those interested in art, design, writing and self-publishing.

Things to bring: A collection of papers (recycled will do - old letters, envelopes, scrap paper or interesting papers you have collected). The bigger your papers are the larger your books! An assortment of A4 size would be helpful. Please also bring a print-out of a poem or piece of writing you like or have written yourself. Optional objects like ribbons, beads, old keys, fabric etc can also be incorporated into your books.

Cost: £20 including tea/coffee and snacks. Please email me on emily.f.wilkinson@gmail.com if you have any questions about the workshop. Suitable for adults & teens aged 14+
