Course overview

In this online workshop, you will learn to develop your skills in making your own books. The books will be suitable for note taking, as a journal, maybe even a small sketchbook. They also make ideal gifts. The books will be stitched along the spine and you will make a hard back for your book using decorative paper or maybe fabric. The books can be any size you prefer, you will only be limited by the size of the paper chosen for the inner pages. A friendly creative session - come and join this friendly workshop.

Course description

This 2.5 hour workshop/course will introduce you to further skills in book making. Taught by a friendly experienced tutor, you will receive helpful instructions and guidance throughout the session to produce a small book with a hard cover. You are encouraged to ask questions and advice during the session. The signatures, or inner pages, will be stitched together using a decorative stitch, whilst the outer cover will be made from card and wrapped in decorative paper - your own or ready bought - or your chosen fabric. The inner pages will determine the use of your book - these could include recycled papers, cartridge or watercolour paper to create a sketchbook, or simply photocopy paper to produce a notebook. The workshop may inspire you to enrol on other creative courses offered by the WEA.
