Course Cost: £105.00 (including basic materials)
You will be shown basic methods of book construction including Japanese binding, pamphlet stitch and folded works. This will provide foundational skills in collating papers either to make individual notebooks, journals or scrap books and is a good starting point for developing further and creating multi - folio books. Decorative papers will be provided alongside threads and ribbons however if you have a particular idea in mind please feel free to bring along any scraps, handmade papers, fabrics and bindings.
Alongside refining the technical skills of bookbinding you will explore the creative possibilities within book arts - outcomes may be functional books or even sculptural forms.
No experience is necessary - all you need is an enthusiasm to learn and have a go!
