I’m so excited to share this bookbinding kit and video tutorial with you – 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!
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!
My optional Mini Bookbinding kit contains – 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. Comes with or without a handy kit bag of bookbinding tools.
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!
As with all my kits an Eteaket teabag and a pack of my favourite Lotus Biscoffee biscuits are included to help fuel your creativity!
