4th June Crafty Pint – Make a handmade book

May 17, 2011 at 10:00 Leave a comment

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. If you wanted a place, please email us and we can let you know next time it runs. We still have places on the Mosaic workshop and will be releasing details of the programme for the rest of the year shortly.

Our next Crafty Pint in the Tooting Tram & Social will be paper crafts and bookmaking with the lovely and talented Amelia from 101 Birdtales.

Local artist and book maker Amelia Critchlow will work with you to make your very own handmade and bound book. Spend an afternoon assembling a hand-stitched paper book with cover. Once our little book is made we can spend the rest of the afternoon filling it with collage, letterstamps and doodles and more, to create a personal book reflecting a theme of your choice. Materials are provided, but you can bring your own photos, fabric, paper and collage bits to add a personal touch or simply play with the materials available and see the magic emerge! The books can then be used as journals, note books or photo albums or will make a beautiful personalised gift for someone special!

You will learn basic measuring, stitching and book assembling techniques and then have fun finding ways to fill the pages with chosen embellishments (all provided on the day). There will be full guidance at every stage, with handmade book examples to view. Beginners and others of all levels are welcome!

Email Gillian for details of our next workshop.
