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!

Come find us at the Bird in Borrowed Feathers summer market – we will be there with Tara Hill and hand cuts hand selling prints and whatnots and it would be lovely to see you!



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!

In March- we ran 4 evenings of relief-printing, looking at a wide range of printing styles and techniques – from carved rubber stamps and lino prints, to built collaged foam + found objects. The course was originally aimed as an introduction to relief printing – but even the experienced printers left having learnt something new! As always, there was a party for the last session, with biscuits and music and lots of printing.

Next up will be our screen printing workshop with hand cuts hand and Tara Hill! If you would like to book a place, contact us here
