During this 3 session workshop series we will look at the traditional craft of book binding with the contemporary skills of digital fabrication and you’ll get to take home your own personally designed and bound book.

You will learn how to:

  • Design a cover in Inkscape (vector graphics software)
  • Cut and etch that design on our laser cutter 
  • Sew up a text block from loose leaves of paper using traditional materials and methods
  • Turn our laser-cut pieces into a cover and complete our books.

As this is a 3-part workshop, you must be able to come to all the dates as each session builds upon the work of the previous;

Saturday 29 October

Saturday 12 November

Saturday 26 November

There are no special skills required, just bring your creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm to bring your book to life!
