Saturday 26 February

A5 Hardback Journal – £75.00 per person

I will guide you through making a bookblock, a cover and finally how to bring them together to make a beautiful A5 book with cloth spine and Japanese paper cover filled with quality Fabriano paper.

During this workshop you will learn about paper grain, folding, collating and stitching together the pages to make a bookblock, before tackling the case (cover) and finally binding the two together. Not only will you leave with a beautiful A5 multi section hardbound book that can be used as a journal or sketchbook, you will also take home the skills to make many more at your kitchen table. No previous experience necessary.

This workshop will be held at Inspire Makers, The Old High Street, Falmouth, 9.30 am – 4.30 pm. Please click here to book your place.

I am happy to visit a different venue if you wish to arrange a group session for friends, family or colleagues. Please contact me for further details.
