This workshop will let you create your own book. Two sessions – one to create a flag book and the other a dos-a-dos book.
Using a mix of plain / decorative papers , different coloured book cloths and threads you can make your own individual book.
These workshops are for you to create your own books using a range of different materials. The materials provided (papers – both decorative and plain, board, book cloth, card, glues, decorations) will allow you to create your own individual books and have some fun while learning new techniques.
Your finished books can be used for poetry, short stories, artwork or whatever your creative juices inspire. The flag book will contain 16 double sided flags (32 pages) for you to utilise and the dos-a-dos book will contain 5 separate booklets of 20 pages – totalling 100 pages. From the techniques learnt, you can then expand on the ideas learnt to make either larger or smaller books and decorate them in your own personal style.
