With Alex Hare
This workshop is designed to show you how to make a handmade book with a cover design of your choice that can be used to display your photos, drawings, notes (even an address book!) or any other content you wish to include.
You will have access to all the kit you need and your tutor, pro photographer and book maker Alex Hare, will show you how to use the tools, materials and binding techniques involved in this traditional craft. By the end you too will be a book maker and have the skills to make your own books at home!
You will see all sorts of simple but beautiful hand made books and, together, we’ll make a hard covered concertina book with your choice of cover. If you have a cover paper or material you wish to use, please ensure you bring it along, or feel free to choose from the selection we have available.
These books are perfect for displaying your photos as journals, sketch books or leave them blank and offer them as birthday/Christmas gifts to friends and family!
At the end of the workshop, you'll take away your very own handmade concertina book. Please note we will be using sharp objects to cut paper and card.
All equipment and materials, as well as tea and coffee, will be provided and the course is free although donations are welcome.
