HANDMADE NOTEBOOKS WORKSHOP (FOR THE ABSOLUTE BEGINNER!)

Learn how to make a selection of notebooks using a combination of folding, sticking & sewing - nothing too complicated and definitely suited to the absolute beginner!

The workshop will cover:

  • How to fold & manipulate paper for bookmaking using specialist bookmaking tools
  • Making a simple folded notebook (no sticking or sewing)
  • Making a 16 page pamphlet with laminated cover
  • Making a 16 page notebook with a pocket
  • Making a 16 page stab binding notebook

All paper for the notebooks & covers will be provided. Specialist tools will be available for use during the workshop. However, each participant should bring:

-  small pair of scissors (or scalpel/craft knife & cutting mat)

-  pencil

-  ruler (preferably metal)
