Boxes useful and beautiful. There is an element of surprise when
you open a box. Hear many ah’s uttered on the discovery of what’s inside.
Please bring along your boxes for the display and we will share
our stories on constructing our boxes. I am looking for everyone to bring along
a box. If you haven’t made a box then come along with a picture of what you
would like to make.
Lets make it a mega display.
Need assistance with your bookbinding project, stitching, there
will be help on hand.
Come along, be with other binders and share and learn together.
Be guided through techniques to create a case bound book that opens flat with decorative stitching on the spine. You will be taught to use a variety of tools and the basics of contemporary fine binding. What you will learn can be applied to many binding styles for artist books and contemporary fine bindings.
Materials will be supplied.
A list of what to bring will be provided following registration.
