We invite you to a Book Making Day.

From 10am till 3pm on Wednesday June 13th.

Where you will learn to handmake a Japanese Stab Bound Book with a hand-decorated cover.

This is an opportunity for experienced makers to develop skills or beginners to discover new ones.
Over coffee the morning will be spent considering different decoration options  and working in the inspiring space of gallery 2 we will think about including collage, paint  and print into your book cover design. We will have fun translating these ideas into making our covers.

While your work dries we will break for lunch. You are welcome to bring along a packed lunch or use one of the lovely cafes nearby.
Drinks will be provided at the studio.
In the afternoon you will learn how to construct your book using the traditional stitch used in Japanese book-binding.
Your completed book will be ready for you to take home and enjoy.

Paper materials, paint and inks will be provided for your book.
