I am pleased to announce that I will be running a series of Summer Bookbinding Workshops at Sugar Junction Tearooms, Tib Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester on behalf of Pretty Nostalgic Magazine, whom I am Regional Editor for the North for. Not only will you be able to learn the traditional craft of Bookbinding in the wonderful surroundings of Sugar Junction, but you will also receive a copy of Pretty Nostalgic (which retails at £8 per copy) an introduction to the magazine, as well as the opportunity to subscribe or purchase further issues or a copy of their beautiful Home book.
I have been a Book Artist since my time at University and have a passion and knowledge for this age old tradition that can be used to display artists work, or transform personal collections and photographs into beautiful books. The course is suitable for beginners wanting to learn how to make a variety of book structures. We will produce a selection of books during the two hour workshop, which will run each Tuesday afternoon from 31st July until 28th August 2012.
You will also receive a handmade book containing information on all the book structures we make, useful links and pages of inspiration, as well as a pot of Sugar Junctions loose leaf tea and a homemade cake.
Contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 07920 404795 for further information and to book your place. Workshops are limited to 15 ppl per session so book early to avoid disappointment!! Tickets are a steal at £20 per person!
I will look forward to meeting you and having a natter over tea and cake and teaching you how to make some fabulous books!!
