Ever feel fed up of throwing away all your unwanted paper, tetra paks and cardboard packaging? Well in this workshop you will use these throwaway items to make notebooks. You will learn to make small notebooks using recycled materials and simple bookbinding techniques. It could be the perfect little gift or could be used for writing your shopping lists or even as a little sketchbook. The workshop is aimed at beginners who have limited or no experience of bookbinding that would love to learn new skills.
This workshop is run by Paperbased which is taught by experienced paper artist Kim Bevan, she provides workshops for all ages. In her own practice she makes artist books which play around with 3D sculptural folding techniques and she creates artwork using paper cutting and printmaking.
If you have any old envelopes, paper, card or tetra paks you would like to bring along please do, otherwise all materials are provided.
