Drop-In Bookbinding Workshop
A drop-in style workshop ideal for markets, art/craft fairs, open days, festivals and events.
In this workshop participants can design their own notebook, journal or sketchbook. There's a huge range of paper to use for the inside - from lined/squared writing paper, to watercolour paper and cartridge paper for drawing and sketching - as well as different cover designs and colourful thread to choose from.
Participants will learn traditional Japanese stab-binding techniques, with step-by-step guidance for beginners, and the option to use materials with pre-punched holes if using sharp tools such as awls isn't suitable (for example: if making books with younger children).
Participants take home a beautiful handmade book, as well as a free mini-zine with illustrated instructions to make another book by themselves later on, or refill the pages when they've filled it up!
To keep the workshop as accessible as possible, participants only pay for the materials they use, and they can decide how much they want to spend beforehand by looking at the list of options and prices. There's a sliding scale of price points with the cheapest option being the basic plain paper pages, right up to the more expensive specialist papers like the 300gsm watercolour paper. Participants can choose to make just one book, or spend a bit more and try out a few different bookbinding techniques or paper types, depending on their available time and budget.
