22 August - Quarter Bound Binding with Bindfulness, 10am - 4.30pm
Make time for Making with Bindfulness in this afternoon workshop.
You will make a flatback A5 book with blank or dot grid paper pages. You will fold sections, hand sew a book block, add endpapers, reinforce the spine and “case-in”, or cover your book in the Quarter bound style.
You will learn (or revisit) beginning bookbinding techniques. We will look at the importance of paper grain and how to fold, sew, and cover your book. All materials will be provided for your afternoon of making, including paper, board, various decorative papers, bookcloth, linen thread and adhesive to make your own uniquely designed books. Tools are provided for use on the day.
A Wasted Kitchen lunch, coffee, tea and biscuits are included.
You’ll take away your unique handbound book, new skills, and the satisfaction and well-being that the investment of time into working creatively brings.
In the workshop you will learn about:
The selection of materials
Some common bookbinding tools and how to use them safely
