Join us for a day long bookbinding workshop with Megan Stallworthy of Perfect Bindings. Suitable for artists, writers, teachers and anyone who has always wanted to make their own book. First made in Egypt as early as the 2nd century, the Coptic binding has attractive exposed sewing and opens completely flat. Quirky accordions are contemporary, playful book structures based on simple folds. 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 is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and an associate lecturer in Graphic Design (Bookbinding) at Falmouth University.

NB numbers are limited to 10.
