|An Introduction to Bookbinding
Limp Paper Binding With Wrap Around Cover.
An introduction to one of the many types of bookbinding.
You will be given step by step tuition on how to create your unique and distinctive small, hand bound book. The basic concepts of book binding will be discussed including tool usage, book binding terms and paper grain.
This attractive, tactile and flexible binding uses Nepali handmade papers with dried flower or plant insets and Tyvek for the spine.
Personalise your book by using your own choice of colour combinations used for various book elements such as endpapers and the threads used for sewing and decorating the spine. The exposed stitching on the spine lends itself to a variety of decorative applications.
By the end of the workshop you will have created a beautiful little bound book which could be used as a journal, sketch book or given as a lovely gift.
Your tutor will provide some materials such as book block paper, end pages, cover paper, tyvek and assorted threads. The cost of these is included in your course fee.
Students will be provided with a list of equipment that they will need to bring along with them.
Your tutor will bring along extra bonefolders, wide eyed needles, brushes, set squares and paints so no need to worry if you do not have any equipment. Please bring along whatever you have.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.
A light lunch will be provided.
