What

Make your own hardback A6 notebook from scratch, suitable for writing and drawing, or great as a gift for someone special.

This is a traditional style of notebook with hard covers and spine, and fabric cover.  You will sew your book together using traditional French link stitch, and the spine will be reinforced with glue and wet strength tissue.

The workshop is suitable for all levels of experience but please be aware that we will be cutting, sewing and gluing so some manual dexterity is needed.

 

Materials

  • The £50 fee includes all materials needed to make one book during the workshop. If you would like to purchase further materials to make a second book at home there will be an additional charge of £5 payable on the day.
  • A small selection of tools and linen threads will also be available to purchase on the day, if desired.

 

Who

Adults, 18+
