BOUND at the Workhouse Chapel

Posted on November 10, 2014 by Susan Green | 0 comments

Visit Handmade for Christmas at The Workhouse Chapel for a glorious selection of unique and beautiful gifts from 35 of Dorset's finest local artists and makers, including my fine leather books. 

The chapel is an amazing space for an pop-up shop.

BOUND will be showing at By The Book: an exhibition of Book Art and Illustration - a variety of work by 16 artists and makers working with, and inspired by, books and illustration. Please join us for the Private View on 1 August 6-8 pm.

It's a great opportunity to view and buy art on a bookish theme, and we'll be showing our leather journals and sketchbooks, and introducing a new range of paperback notebooks and sketchbooks in unusual binding styles.
