Adult Bookbinding and Printing
A creative afternoon of printing and bookbinding inspired by being beside the sea!
Learn the techniques required to create your own A6 decorative book, which makes for a great journal, sketchbook or photo album - an ideal personal project or gift for someone special.
First up we'll take some inspiration from the seaside surroundings and make a set of stamps, which could include shells, seaweed, ships and anchors (or whatever catches your eye) - quick to make but very effective.
We'll use these stamps to hand-print a range of papers to cover a our book covers and create a range of patterned pages. Next up you'll learn how to bind your book together with a decorative exposed V stitch.
Leave the workshop with your own set of original seaside stamps (that you can use again and again), a unique book to keep or give as a gift, and the skills to make many more!
All materials and equipment is provided. Bookbinding beginners welcome!
