Handmade Books by the Sea Weekend I

Decorated Papers & Folded Books 

Come and enjoy a full weekend of creating handmade books in the Angus coastal town of Arbroath. We will work in the lovely spacious studio at Springfield Creative Arts. The workshop will begin with exploring easy, fun and effective paper decorating techniques including paste-paper, marbling, painting and simple printing to create unique colourful papers. You will learn about the properties of paper and go on to use a number of folding techniques to create concertina, flutter, maze and tassel books. Several folded books, including at least one hard cover concertina book will be made from the decorated papers to create a series of truly unique books that express your own creativity.

Kirsty’s enthusiastic and responsive teaching style creates an enjoyable and encouraging learning experience for all levels of ability.  Lunches, refreshments and all materials are included in the course fee.
