I just wanted to say, thank you, this workshop exceeded my expectations. I have never been very good with a needle and thread however with Angela's expert guidance within a short time I had succeeded in making a simple pamphlet stitch book and this gave me great confidence to take on two further books which were more complex. In all I made three books, had a thoroughly enjoyable day and I am now looking forward to making more. I would not hesitate to recommend this course.Kind regards,George
Book Making at Weald & Downland Museum, Singleton, West Sussex.
Sunday April 5th 2020 9.30-3.30pm. CANCELLED. New Date 27th September 2020 9.30-16.30
How to make three different non-adhesive books will be demonstrated; a pamphlet booklet, a long stitched book and a multi section case bound type book with soft covers. These styles of bindings allows for the use of a variety of paper weights including graph paper, tracing paper and envelopes and paper with opposing grains. You will be taught how to mark, pierce and stitch using various cotton thread and tapes or ribbons. The covers will be made from colourful handmade paper and using tape or ribbon as a decorative form of securing the book. Because there is no or little adhesive used in the spine the pages move freely within the book. Once these skills have been mastered this structure has many applications, they can be made any size and in a range of materials to form your own unique sketchbook, journal or notebook
