We finished off the workshop season with book binding – a mix of folded and stitched book making techniques and some fun added extras, like making marbled end papers.
We were trying out a new workshop space in Sherwood – that turned out to be very convenient for some of the participants!
LeftLion have chosen the book making workshop as their pick of the month!
It isn’t going to be at The Malt Cross, as they have closed for refurbishments, so we will be trying out a new space in Sherwood.
The workshop will be starting on June 16, and will be looking at different construction techniques and book making styles.
This is a more exclusive (smaller) workshop space, so booking is essential! Contact us here to book your place!
I spent the day with People Express in Derbyshire, making books with Shout! – a support group for families with children and young people with disabilities.
It was a lovely sunny day and a lot of great books got made: one was about Killer Whales, and one was about stars, and one was a story about a girl who stole a plane and ended up flying to space. Everyone got given instructions on how to make new books at home and how to make copies to give to their friends!
As part of the Bees Make Honey event “Memories of the Future” – we ran a zine making workshop at the Creative Quarter.
