About

Create your own beautiful handmade book, in a rural setting, meeting new artists and makers.

This day-long workshop will take you through the different stages of making a multi-section hand bound book with hard cover, including folding, making endpapers, stitching, spine lining, covering and casing in. Led by professional printmaker, book artist and bookbinder Lina Avramidou.

You will learn about paper grain, bookbinding cloths, and different bookbinding tools. You will take home your finished book which can be used as a sketchbook, notebook or to incorporate your artwork or writing. All materials will be provided and no previous bookmaking experience is required.

Food and refreshments provided.
