About the event

INSTRUCTOR - Kate Rochester

* Small group of up to 4 participants plus instructor

Suitable for beginners with all materials and tools provided on the day.

Learn how to make a pocket concertina book, which is a versatile book structure ideal for holding keepsakes, photos, poetry or personal messages. These books have a pocket in a concertina fold, with hard covers covered in book cloth. 

During this workshop participants will:

* Learn some basic bookbinding skills

* Be introduced to some traditional bookbinding tools and binding equipment

* Get artistic using various paint techniques to decorate their pages or you can choose to keep the pages blank

* Be introduced to a foil blocking machine to personalise their books with word or two and have the choice of blocking in various coloured foils

* The books are 10 x 15.5cm and there will be a choice of cloth covers.

The workshop runs from 11am to 4.30pm with an hour lunch break.

* Please be aware that the studio is on the second floor and unfortunately there is no lift. Should this be a problem for you, you may want to visit one of my workshops at a different location.

Once your booking has been made an email will be sent out to the attendee with further information.

Kate Rochester is an artist bookbinder working in London. In 2004 she founded Hanbury Press which produces limited edition books and hand-printed papers using traditional hand-binding methods.
