Over the next few Wednesdays, some of the Demonstrators will be doing workshops that we are all free to join. Last Wednesday I joined one… yes, it is BOOKBINDING!! The idea of making books has been around my head for quite some time, so I was more than happy when I found out about this workshop.

10 Am Start: We started by talking about the steps in bookbinding, then we had a look at different examples of books and then talked about the tools needed in the process.
Then we worked on the cover.
The book has now dried and it looks incredible. Even though I was making it, my brain didn’t seem to click until it was actually finished. I was really happy with the result and do have plans of making more. Next time I plan on making the paper myself!
