As part of The Secret Library of Solihull exhibition, learn how to make a variety of hand bound books with our bookbinding master classes.

Bookbinding: Introduction Session

Saturday 10 April 2010

11am – 4pm, including lunch break

Using the artists’ books in the exhibition as a starting point, this day long course will cover a number of attractive and easy-to-make book structures using a variety of methods.

Participants will be using specialist tools including bone folders, bookbinding knives, needles and linen thread, and a range of papers and boards to make their own handmade book.

Bookbinding: Making your own artists’ book

Sunday 11 April 2010

11am – 4pm, including lunch break

The second day will build upon book structures learned in the previous session. Participants will learn a new bookbinding structure, and will have the opportunity to produce their own artists’ book with guidance from the tutors.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own work, illustrations, drawings, photographs and, most importantly, ideas with which to make books!
