Fools Day Out at East London Printmakers’ Studio- Part 3 (Book Making)

14 Aug

On Wednesday I was at East London Printmakers’ studio for the last time in this series of workshops. This time I was book making.

I was expecting to sew a few pages and bind them with a soft back…but no. We were treated to a day long tutorial on how to bind proper hard back books. Brilliant.

Here is my first hand made book;

Amazing! I never thought I’d be able to make proper proper books.

Big thanks to tutor Richard Roberts who was a real pleasure to work with. This was his last book binding workshop at ELP so good luck to him for everything he’s doing.

With my newly recieved wages from playwork I’ve just invested in a book binding kit to get cracking on more at home. I’ve sewn the pages for 2 books already. Exciting.
