Life is Good Workshops
For the Spring, I have been working with Jill to provide a series of creative bookbinding workshops at her lovely shop 'Life is Good' in Morningside, Edinburgh.
It is a great chance to meet some other creative folk and pass on some skills, and of course have a good natter along the way. Last month we focused on beginner skills, introducing a pamphlet stitch and step stitch in addition to some simple and useful flutter books. This month we are stepping it up a gear, making a hardbound photograph album using a traditional Japanese stab binding. I am really excited about this workshop as it is always great to see amazed students go away with a finished book at the end of the evening.
In April we have shedding the rules slightly and making a slightly sculptural hand bound journal, one for those who don’t like straight lines and gluey pages!
Details for the two evenings are below, to book on either workshop please ring Jill at ‘Life is Good’ on 07903585682 to pay a deposit. Thank you!
