Event description

Description

The Course runs for 4 weeks from 9.30am - 1.30pm commencing on Monday 19th February each week until Monday 12th March. It will be held in the Community Shed located at The Hut Community Centre.

Samantha from The Smudge Club has a background in Graphics, Book binding, Visual Arts, Illustration and Textiles. Bookbinding has always been a passion of hers, especially the older medieval style books, and books that are used in Movie and TV series such as: Dr Who’s “Spoilers Book”, Harry Potter ‘s “Book of Monster s”, Charmed “The Book of Shadows”, Raiders of the Lost Ark’s “Grail diary”etc.

She has been doing commissioned pieces for a number of years and would now like to share her experiences by teaching others. The Medieval Book Binding course covers all the basic techniques required for the student to have the confidence to diversify into other genres of book binding upon completing the workshop.

The word Medieval conjures up images of Europe, the United Kingdoms, Wizards, Knights, a time of magic and influence. When libraries are filmed they usually have the “Old English” library with books that are older than ever and are covered in dust. The older the book the more mysticism and secrets it appears to have. Make yourself a journal for writing, or art diary for illustration, or just have it on your book shelf. In this workshop you will learn the basics of book binding, how they get those ridges on the spine and the delight of making something with your own hands.

Size of the completed handmade book is 270mm x 190mm just under an A4 size.
