Bookbinding Techniques

with Pru Quarmby

SUNDAY 1ST DEC

10AM - 4PM

$119 / $94

(INCLUDES $20 MATERIALS)

Learn to make hand-bound books with 2 or 3 sections.

These beautiful small books make great gifts, especially when they are made by you!  Using decorative papers and book cloth, you'll create a selection of small books with external stitching on the spine.

Firstly you'll decorate the paper and then move on to make the book covers, fold sections, and stitch several different designs on the spines of 3 sizes of books (A5, A6, A7).  These are great as gifts, or as notebooks for your own use.

Note: Ticket includes a $20 materials kit

WHAT YOU'LL GET

  •  At least 3 books of your own creation

  • First hand book binding experience

  • Printed notes so you can make more books at home

WHAT TO BRING

  • A notebook and pen

  • Apron or clothes you don't mind getting dirty

  • Bring a 30cm metal ruler and pencil if you have one (optional)

BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.
