We are delighted to announce a return to Stapleford Granary where we found the room is just perfect for our marbling/binding day - running water, drying racks and high benches for comfortable binding! Kate Brett from Payhembury Marbled Papers will share her wealth of knowledge and experience during the morning when you will be able to design and produce your own 'marbles' and we will take some of that paper and have it dried, ready for you to produce a beautiful and versatile book structure in the afternoon. All materials and equipment will be available and to give you an idea of productivity, people made 20+ fabulous prints with plans for use - framed pictures and picture mounts, wrapping paper, book covering, card-making, boxes, lampshades and more.
Boxes! How we love boxes! During this class we will explore a variety of box options including stacking, dividing and alternative lids whilst also learning (through demonstration and practice) the all-important skills of cutting and covering. Although we will work to the same template there will be the opportunity to personalise with covering and lining materials. A beautiful selection of locally made Payhembury Marbled Papers will be available to choose from as well and co-ordinating buckram which is a sturdy book and box covering material. Participants will leave with one completed box along with materials, instructions and skills to extend the project into a ‘stack’.
All equipment and materials will be provided along with step-by-step demonstration and practice.

Miniature books are always admired and loved. In this class you will learn how to scale things down and produce a selection of beautiful miniature books that will be fully functioning and useable. You will make a long stitched leather bound book as well as some different hardbound and folded book structures. These will make ideal gifts, keepsakes, necklaces or even Christmas tree decorations.
All materials will be provided. Stapleford Granary has easy car parking.
