Description

5 WEEK EVENING COURSE

TUESDAYS 9th JULY - 6th AUGUST 2018

6:30pm - 9:00pm

Develop your skills in bookbinding on our 5 week intermediate course. This course will explore slightly more complex forms of bookbinding, including hardback books. You will also gain ideas for future projects to try at home. You will produce some books which take a bit more time, but still at an easy pace and with plenty of support.

What experience do I need?

This course is ideal for those who have already taken the Introduction to Bookbinding course here at Leeds Print Workshop. It is designed for those who already have some familiarity with bookbinding and want to build on that and discover new ways of making books.

What will I make?

You will make a substantial hardback sketchbook. You’ll also produce concertina or leporello books, multi-section stitches, and case bindings.

Who is my tutor?

Susie Rumsby is a Printmaking Instructor at Leeds Arts University, where she introduces students to screen print, etching, linocut, monoprint and bookbinding. Before coming to teach art in Leeds, Susie studied printmaking in Portland, Oregon, where she also worked as a master printer’s apprentice, an artists’ assistant, and at Portland Art Museum helping to put on shows of prints and drawings. Susie is a founding committee member of Leeds Print Workshop, and believes in making the fun of printmaking open to as many people as possible.

Do I need to bring anything?

Leeds Print Workshop will provide all the bookbinding tools you will need, as well as paper, buckram and any other materials needed to make your books. However, if you have some interesting papers which you think would make a good book, feel free to bring them along.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will refund you in full if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. Once booked, you cannot transfer to another course.
If you miss a session on the course for any reason, unfortunately we cannot offer the opportunity to attend an additional session.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
