1. Learn how to make a sewn single-section pamphlet binding (which you can repeat at home using simple tools).
2. Complete a hard-back writing or drawing book (A5 or A6 size) sewn and bound using the traditional method of rounding the spine.
Make a covered box with a lid and a hidden magnetic closure.
FLAT-OPENING SKETCHBOOK (Half day)
This binding has a clever soft-back construction which creates a slightly freer spine area, and thus allows the pages to open completely flat. It is a book binding that you can repeat at home without specialist tools.
A book with pockets and windows and fold-out pages which will hold personal and travel memorabilia, postcards, photographs and other paper collectibles. Suitable for your holidays, to use as a journal, sketch book or scrap book. The album will be cased into a sturdy hardback binding. (It is a glued structure, with no sewing.)
BIND A 'PROPER BOOK'
In this workshop you will complete a substantial multi-section hardback book starting from scratch. Beginning by folding and sewing the pages in sections, you will then create a hard-backed case binding, using bookcloth for the spine, and covering the sides with decorated papers. You will use traditional bookbinding tools. .
An album has a special construction with spacers between the pages, to make it suitable for items to be stuck into the book, such as recipes, cuttings, letters, photographs etc. This is larger than the Memory Album (above) and can be up to A4 size.
