Contemporary Advanced Bookmaking Course (with me)
Tuesday 4th to 25th August; 6.30pm to 9.00pm

Spend 4 summer evenings at hot bed press adding to your bookbinding skills by creating 3 beautiful and versatile structures. You will complete a compensation concertina book, ideal for recording and housing notes and sketches. An intricate button hole stitch with an exposed spine opens flat to provide function and decoration and learn the hugely satisfying and popular coptic stitch using found papers and ephemera, ideal for binding prints. These techniques will enable you to make your own artists' books and editions in the future. With dozens of limited edition books to be inspired by, you will leave the course bubbling with ideas to apply to the forms you have mastered.
