This course is suitable for anyone who loves paper and is interested in making their own sketchbooks and notebooks. We will make several different styles of books including hard backed and soft cover books, using paper, card, fabric and leather (vegetarian option available). The course is carefully structured to include both simple and more involved projects, in order to develop skills and build confidence. All techniques will be fully demonstrated. The course is suitable for beginners, as well as returners who would like to work on some variations of the book structures.
There will be a £20 to include paper, card, fabric, leather, and equipment used in class.
