Introduction to Bookbinding Workshop
18 Apr 2021 - 20 May 2021
Join us from the comfort of your own home to learn the basics of bookbinding.
On this short online workshop you’ll use the tools, materials and techniques to get started in various bookbinding methods including pamphlet stitch and concertina books. You’ll gain the knowledge to continue making books at home.
Who is the workshop for?
This is ideal for beginners in bookbinding or those who wish to refresh their previous skills and gain some new inspiration.
Materials & Equipment
The workshop fee includes a full bookbinding kit containing all the equipment and materials you will need for the workshop which will be posted out to you shortly before the workshop date (postage is UK only, although international students may attend if they acquire the kit themselves). The material kit will contain a cutting mat, craft knife, pencil, linen thread, bone folder, awl/piercing point, bookbinding needle, bulldog clip, metal ruler, pva glue, book cloth, card pieces for hard covers and various coloured & white cartridge papers.
Our online workshops will be delivered by one of our experienced tutors over Zoom so you’ll need to have internet access on a computer and a suitable space to work.
The booking deadline is no less than 1 week before the workshop date to allow time for us to send out the materials kits.
If you have any questions about accessing the workshop please get in touch by emailing email@example.com.
