Description

1 DAY WORKSHOP

SATURDAY 4th NOVEMBER 11am - 4pm

This workshop is for those who want to explore slightly more complex forms of bookbinding, including hardback books, and gain ideas for future projects at home.

We will explore some more complex binding techniques, such as a multi section hardcover book, but still at an easy pace and with plenty of support.

What experience do I need?

For those who already have some familiarity with the basics of bookbinding and want to build on their skills. It will be ideal for people who have already taken the Beginners Bookbinding course here at Leeds Print Workshop, or who have done some bookbinding in their own practice.

What will I make?

At least two books, including at least one substantial hardback sketchbook.

Who is my tutor?

Susie Rumsby is a Printmaking Instructor at Leeds College of Art, 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, bookcloth 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 first session of the course.

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.

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