Learn the basics of hand-bookbinding, and explore the creative possibilities of designing and making your own books, in this one-day workshop suitable for beginners. Artist and bookbinder Derek Wood will guide you, step by step through the basics, folding and hand-stitching paper, constructing a durable cover using book-cloth and decorative paper to form a multi-section book. All basic materials and equipment will be provided, but you may also bring along any special papers or prints you have created to use in your project. At the end of the session you will have created an A5 hardback journal / sketchbook to keep.
