DESIGN AND MAKE A BOOK 

Held over two afternoons in the February half term, on Monday 19th and Wednesday 21st, from 2-4.30pm in my studio in St Peters.  We will be using oil paint to marble the cover, getting messy with paper pulp and then sewing the book all together using the bookbinders traditional coptic stitch to create something absolutely unique for you to treasure and keep.
