Embrace the tactile and immersive technique of unique book arts.

From master bookmaker Beth Serjeant, you’ll learn three bookbinding techniques, starting with a simple concertina structure. You’ll then be guided on how to make a basic pamphlet style booklet with various innovations and a storage box. Your final creation will be an index book, personally developed by Beth herself.

A selection of card and papers will be provided although you are welcome to bring along any special paper or discarded prints that you would like to use. All other materials provided.

Book early to avoid disappointment! Age: 16 +

What to bring:
• All materials and equipment provided.
• You can bring any paper, card or discarded prints to use (optional)
