A practical workshop exploring handmade book techniques. Through the process of making your own mini artist book you will learn some simple but inventive paper folding and bookbinding techniques.

You will be taken through a process of creation, cutting, folding, sticking, using scrap papers to make your own beautiful artist book. We will make a basic book that can then be personalised, collaged, decorated.

The workshop will also include marbling paper and some watercolour painting to create base papers for our book creations. If you have any interesting scrap papers or old drawings that you don`t mind cutting up bring them along and we can incorporate them into your book project. No experience is necessary, the techniques are all simple but effective. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Sophie is an artist and printmaker who likes to make mini books and has a large collection of scrap paper!
