Bookbinding Workshops

Posted on July 09, 2014 by Susan Green | 0 comments

I'm running two workshops this September in conjunction with artist-educator Laura Joy. The first introduces you to the pamphlet, concertina and Japanese stab stitch book forms, the second focuses on the Longstitch with Linkstitch binding, using a leather cover. In both workshops you will have the opportunity to personalise your book(s) and although all tools and materials are provided, you are welcome to bring your own interesting papers, artwork etc to bind. No previous experience in bookbinding is necessary and you can attend either or both workshops.  

BOOK MAKING: Sunday 7th September 10 am - 4 pm Cost £35

In this workshop you will learn how to make 3 book forms - the concertina, pamphlet and Japanese stab-stitch binding. These books make perfect gifts and work well as photo / keepsake albums, and can also be a great way of binding together prints or drawings. You will have the opportunity to make your books individual and unique, and after this day workshop, you will never need to buy a notebook or sketchbook again!

For further information please contact Laura Joy: 07765 681 592                                                          

To book please contact the venue directly: Artisan Community Art Studio on 07729 829 209 or email artisanstudio1@gmail.com

MAKE A MEDIEVAL JOURNAL: Sunday 28th September 10 - 4 Cost £35

In this day workshop you will learn how to make the Longstitch with Linkstitch book form. This 15th century binding with leather cover makes a wonderful journal, sketchbook, scrapbook or guest book. Examples that I've made can be viewed here - you'll be making similar books!
