We plan to hold a series of seasonal sketchbook sessions at the Earsham Wetlands Centre through 2018.
To help us prepare for this – and because it is fun – Helen Howes has offered to run a book-making workshop day for us at her workshop in Raveningham
We have opted for quicker folded, slotted and simple signature books so that they can be used spontaneously. A beautifully bound and covered sketchbook can sometimes be too intimidating to work in.
There are opportunities to make beautiful books using Coptic binding with Helen . You can find the details of these on her website:
The techniques that we will cover can be adapted to various sizes of paper, vilenes, canvas…Watercolour paper, cartridge papers, found papers such as old maps, wallpaper, flyers, letters……..
Helen will provide basic materials and tea or coffee during the day. You can bring your own packed lunch or use the Ravenous cafe on site.
It would be helpful if you could bring a straight edge and a sharp craft knife along with any papers that you want to include .
The cost of the workshop will be £40 per person. It will be from 11.00 until 5.00
Helen will run it for a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 people.
Date 9th February 2018 It may seem early to book this but the topic is a popular one and we may need to arrange a second day. Helen’s schedule is very busy so we need to get in fast!
