Event description
In this hands on book making workshop we will make six different books in two days.

About this Event

In this hands on workshop we will make some simple but effective and stunning structures to practice folding, cutting and sewing skills which will end as a book.

Then we will tackle some slightly more complex book works. Some are more complex simply because they have a number of steps e.g. books with hard covers and drying times for glue. All levels catered for. We will be making art-bindings and book structures as opposed to a fine binding course which uses leather etc.

We will make a:

1. One-page book 2. A concertina 3. A pamphlet fold/concertina combination 4. Decorative Japanese Stab binding 5. A piano hinge binding6. Coptic binding 7. A hard-cover book 8. And within these, we will make shaped variations
