This workshop, booking through Eventbrite, is being hosted by printmaker Sue Jones at her lovely new studio just outside Saffron Walden.
Most classes teach techniques for binding a number of signatures into a book but of course there is often the need to bind single pages too, particularly amongst artists and printmakers.
During this one-day class you will learn how to prepare and make a ‘loop’ binding. The chief value of this binding is that it hold single pages in a traditional book format. It lies flat when open and is a beautiful structure in which to present prints, photographs or other flatwork. It is also popular as a journal, travel book or artist sketchbook. It is a structure which can be made at home with minimal equipment, and makes a fabulous gift. Once you've done this class it will be possible to bind anything 2-dimentional into a book form - tiles, slates, sheets of perspex or balsa wood; even paper!
Suitable for beginners.
