I’m running a two day bookbinding workshop in August and I’ve designed the class to mimic the way a bindery would operate, where tasks are organised around the constraints of having to wait for stages to dry flat in a book press. In one day, it is a challenge to get a hard bound book finished, but in two days it should be possible to produce one beautiful hard bound book and several other types of book as well.
Of course there are lots of ways to create simpler books and those are the ones that feature in my one day Simple Bookbinding class. Here are a few examples of folded and glued books without any stitching.
This is constructed from a single sheet of paper, folded and cut in a certain way to make an intriguing and complicated looking book. But actually, it’s really easy to do. Here are a couple more, each one made from a single sheet of 12x12 inch paper.
If you fancy having a go at bookbinding, I am available to teach to groups of between 2 and 8 people – click here to message me.
