A one-day workshop offered to a maximum of 2 persons at a time.
The workshop will comprise various techniques demonstrated for you to make your own multi- sectioned, full, half-bound or quarter-bound cloth, sewn book to take home, using the knowledge and skills gained to further make your own books at home or to continue on to other methods with myself.
A certain amount of precision is required in measuring paper; then folding, collating, sewing, and pasting decorative papers, end papers and cloth cover boards. Also blind, recessed cover panels for a title or image will be made if wanted. Sewing with tapes, lining up of book spine, grain direction of papers, and casing in will be shown and creativity will be encouraged at all times to produce an individual book.
In this workshop the one to one, or one to two, individual attention given will very much benefit the recipient in this particular chosen craft.
All equipment will be provided and a certain amount of materials, for which there will be a charge of £5.00 to cover the cost.
