On this workshop with bookbinder Megan Stallworthy we will be making two contemporary book forms: the Cross Structure binding and the Everlasting Fold book, perfect for artists, writers, teachers and anyone interested in making books. Participants will learn core bookbinding skills of folding, cutting, sewing and glueing and take home their two handmade books along with a set of workshop notes. All the materials and equipment will be provided.

Megan Stallworthy is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and an associate lecturer in Graphic Design (Bookbinding) at Falmouth University.
