This 4 week course welcomes you to the world of bookmaking. Each week will take a look at making a different book, starting off working basic books forms from single papers. We'll work our way through the next level up and in the final workshop we'll make a hand-bound book.
During the course, we’ll explore different ways of making a series of books: collaging zines, mono-etching printmaking, where you will draw directly on to the printing surface before transferring your drawing on to paper, flower and snake books. Learn how to spruce up your books with ties and jackets!
Week 1: Single Sheet Book Forms
Week 2: Mono-etching Printmaking Flower Books
Week 3: Accordion Books with Pockets, Jackets and Ties!
Week 4: Hand-bound Pamphlet Books, paperback and hardback.
Leave with a mini portfolio of books you can use and be inspired to continue delving into the world of bookmaking.
