About Book Binding Workshop with Book Smith

On this one day course you will learn to make a unique A5 landscape sketchbook, from start to finish. Yours to take home and fill with thoughts or musings at All The Young Nudes drop-in drawing club or to give as a special gift!

We will start by stitching together a combination of drawing papers, including pastel paper into ’signatures’ before binding them with decorative endpapers, headbands, bookmarking ribbon, contrasting bookcloth and functional closures!

The cover can feature your own artwork, sketches, initials using old wooden type blocks or a cyanotype (see our ‘Impressions in Blue’ cyanotype course). Don’t worry if you don’t have these, we will supply a range of decorative materials including marbled papers, old maps and even music scores you can use.

No previous experience required.

Participants will all take home one sketchbook and there will be refreshments provided by local heroes.

Your tutor, Tracey Millier Radnall (book-smith.org) is a book-binder, designer and writer based near Edinburgh.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Book Binding Workshop with Book Smith are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
