Paperback Book Binding – Fully Booked

Paperback Book Binding - Fully Booked

book bindingThroughout this day-long course we will be learning traditional book binding techniques, and using a range of hand tools to make a beautiful and personalised A5 notebook that you can take home with you.

We will also be doing collage which you can use to cover your notebook, and you can use your own printed images to create a zine, where we will be considering image relationships.

Please bring your own printed images, whether that is photographs of  family, artworks or anything you want really. It is about creating visual narratives in the form of a small book! You can also use collaging material – we’ll have some magazines available for this.

Tutor: Charles Turner

Gloaming Notebooks is a small business operated by Charles Turner, who fell in love with book binding when studying at Manchester School of Art. The word Gloaming references the time of day after the sun has set and before the darkness of night. This tranquil and reflective space cast in the blue light of pre-night time mirrors the ethos of his books. Inspired by walking and introspection, they encourage individuals to develop a dialog with oneself. Bringing pen to paper emphasises your handwriting, something as unique as your fingerprint.

Fee: £65 per person

NB. There is an additional fee of £10 for materials (Paper, linen thread, collage material, photographs, printer ink, glue). Please bring this amount on the day in cash.

There will be maximum of 7 places.
