When: Sunday 18th November, 11am-2pm
What you will get: Take home a beautiful handcrafted hardcover accordion book made from the highest quality archival art materials along with a small ‘mantlepiece’ accordion book – both crisp and ready to take on your paint, pencil or ink marks. As you make your books you will learn lots of basic bookbinding knowledge about grain, folding, cutting along with all the equipment, materials and not-scary mathematical tips you need to embark confidently on your own projects.
All materials and equipment will be provided along with delicious substantial snacks.
I am a full time photographer and a part time artist. For a long time I have also created handmade books in various forms for myself and others to contain, record, hide and display thoughts, memories and artworks. I cannot imagine a time when people will not be drawn to objects made by hand, real to the touch. Such things contain something special…a desirable warmth, that no amount of technology can match.
