Special bookbinding workshop with Edel Hopkin
We are very lucky to have Edel Hopkin at the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale 2016. In this 3 hour workshop you will be led through the processes necessary to make your own hand-sewn and hand-bound notebook using traditional materials (including beautiful locally handmarbled papers) and techniques.
You will also look at how a simplified version of this binding can be turned into an artist sketchbook or become the beginning of a book arts project.
Participants will go home with their own gorgeous book and the confidence and instructions to repeat the process at home – without the need for specialist equipment.
The workshop is suitable for all levels of experience including those completely new to bookbinding, and all necessary materials are provided. Pre-prepared kits will be available if you wish to put your new knowledge into practice immediately.
Before and after the workshop you will be able to soak up the wonderful exhibition of hand-pulled prints on display in the historic Pitt Building. This is a really special workshop and one not to miss. Cost - £53.00.
