Bookbinding opportunities in the Autumn

Autumn is a great time to start a new interest or learn a new skill.
I will be teaching bookbinding at Craft in the Bay this year where there will be three very different courses to cater for varrying interests and levels of skill but everyone is welcome.

The new course with Make it in Wales in October is designed for those wishing to use their own fabric to bind a book- perhaps for a wedding guest book or photograph album.

All tools, materials and a choice of fabrics will be provided for everyone at these courses
29th September
Bookbinding for Beginners
Simple pamphlets with soft covers, concertina books with hard covers and ribbon ties and books with stab-stitch bindings

Coptic Binding
Coptic bound books are constructed with decorative chain stitching across the spine and open flat when laid on a table
