Course will be delivered over 10 weeks
This is a very comprehensive workshop, which students can follow at their own pace, helped step by step by the experienced art teacher and bookbinder Laurie Legrand.
Over the course of these wonderful and practical classes, participants will learn to – differentiate different types of books and how they can be reproduced, – set a basic book-binding station at home, – stitch and glue different types of book-blocks, – design and make different types of covers (using hard card, fabric, paper, fold over leather, ribbons, etc..), – repair beloved old books, – design their own project with the help of the teacher (artist’s sketchbooks, notebooks, portfolios, etc..).
Each student will be making and taking home an average of 4 to 8 books including repairs.
