Jo Barrett will be running another session of her popular, and lovely, Japanese Bookbinding workshop.
Learn how to create your own journal/sketchbook using simple materials.
Utilising a traditional Japanese technique called ‘stab binding’ you will design and assemble the book to your own specifications. Once mastered, this is a skill you can use at home to produce bespoke journals, sketch books and photo albums. Cost is £25 per person including all materials required to produce a unique handmade journal. Refreshments also included.
