LET’S GET TOGETHER AND PRINT A BOOK

P1100013 P1100014

Have you often wondered what to include in a blank book? Have you ever wanted to make a book with prints in it?

This workshop is a good way to get started on some simple printing which can decorate a book page. We will begin the day carving a simple block from a drawing of a tree, leaf or a bird. The concertina book we make will be a display space for our prints which we will share.

At the end of the day, you will have learnt how to make:

  • a concertina book in which we will display our prints

  • your own ‘soft cut’ print block

  • a clever hard cover, with no glue

You will take home a book of beautiful prints and a print block to use again and again.

Cost: $70

Materials Fee: $10

Date: Friday 4th September

Time: 10am – 3pm

BYO lunch, tea and coffee provided

Venue: 55 Woodhouse Grove, Box Hill North 3129

Workshops for 2015

I really love teaching people bookmaking and paper making. Watching them discover their innate creativity as they enjoy time with a small group, learning new skills.

As usual most of my workshops arise from requests people make.  This year I started with a successful 4 day workshop ‘Mapping the Journey’ and will plan some other paper making and book arts workshops at different times during the year.

Dates can be arranged for people who gather their own group of 4 people for book making and 3 people for papermaking classes. I run the classes here at my studio in Box Hill North.

Contact me if you have an idea for a workshop.  I can plan the day and invite others to join us.

I will let you know when I have a workshop on offer. If you subscribe by entering your email address in the box to the left of your screen you will receive notifications.
