I’m so excited to share this bookbinding kit and video tutorial with you – I generally run this class in the lead up to Christmas as it’s a great way to use those smaller bits of leather/pleather/paper that have accumulated throughout the year, and the books make great personalised gifts!
Imagine waking up to one of these beauties in your stocking…yes please 🙂 The kit itself also makes a great present if you have a crafty someone on your Christmas list!
My videos are friendly, comprehensive and take you through each part of the process step by step – you will have continued access so can rewind, re-watch and revisit at a later date. I will take you through how to prepare your pages, make a template, punch holes and bind 4 books together, each with a different exposed stitch. I’ll then share 4 nifty ways to fasten your books using buttons, elastic and a leather/pleather wrap around
This workshop is suitable for bookbinding beginners, adults and children aged 10+ (depending on sewing experience, adult help/supervision might be necessary).
My tutorials will equip you with everything you need to know to make a library full of mini (A8 sized) books – perfect for taking out and about, keeping notes & lists, writing daily gratitudes, gifting to friends and family…you name it!
I’ve prepared an optional kit to go with this workshop – these come with or without the bookbinding tools and contain leather or pleather book covers in a range of colours and recycled copy paper cut to size, plus a collection of lovely decorative papers, buttons, threads and fastenings to include in your books.
These kits have been put together with the environment and sustainability in mind – from the handcrafted awl and tools made from recycled materials to the quality remnant leather and paper off-cuts. I believe in squeezing every last bit of creativity out of materials, and look forward to showing you how to give the items in your kit a new lease of life as unique and usable books!
And because winter is nearly upon us I have included some yummy Chai tea from Eteaket and Divine fairtrade dark chocolate coins to bring some festive vibes and fuel your creativity!
