The first course in my 2018 bookbinding programme starts on the 25th February - why not join me as we enter a world of unusual folded book forms to inspire and express your creativity. You’ll learn to make the Hot Dog, Turkish Map, Gatefold and Lotus Flower folds as well as various Accordion - aka Concertina, Leporello - styles.
Folded forms present unique opportunities for making artist’s books, travelogues, pop-ups and keepsake books which we’ll discuss and explore together, as much as time permits. They are also ideal for self-publishing zines, flyers and brochures and we’ll explore those possibilities together, as well.
Turkish Map Fold
DATES & TIMES: This is a 4 session course held on Sunday afternoons, 2:30 - 5 pm on February 25th, March 4th, March 11th and March 18th. I strongly recommend you attend each session of your course as you will build on the skills and knowledge you gained in previous sessions.
COST: £70 includes use of tools and materials plus worksheets to take home.
