Bookbinding Classes at Stampers Grove
After the success of Cass’ last series of bookbinding workshops we are delighted to have her back running another four 3 hour workshops for us over the next few months. You will be learning a new bookbinding method at each class. You can come to individual classes or book for the whole series. A mix of new, recycled and pre-used materials will be used in this course and the emphasis will be on working with everyday materials. Each class will allow time for creating the main structure of the book and time to personalise and decorate. Each workshop is tailor-made to fit the requirements of the group and everyone leaves with their very own finished book and the skills to make many more.
The classes will run on Wednesday afternoons at 12noon to 3pm. The cost of each class is £18. All materials will be provided but if you have any papers, maps, wrapping papers etc that you would like to incorporate into your book, please do bring them along. Each class requires a minimum of 5 people to proceed and early booking is advised as we will make a decision based on numbers one week before the class so feel free to spread the word. 😊
PLEASE NOTE: Animal leather will be used in this course, if participants would prefer not to use leather please advise when booking so Cass can prepare an alternative.
