I spent the day in the City at a Bookbinding Workshop - Accordion Spine & Pamphlet Stitch today. What a treat. I wanted to do something that stretched my comfort zones and that was a little different for me. I am trying to be braver in this area of taking in person classes.
It was a lovely studio and the weather made it a perfect day to be huddled in the studio making handmade art books. Tomorrow we stitch and make our hardboard covers and spines.
I have been collecting the most beautiful covers the last while and I can't wait to fill them with beautiful signatures... I want to get into the habit of making art books and practice my stitching skills. When I'm not doing them regularly, I forget the sequences and I have to learn from scratch all over again.
Will share more tomorrow...
