Event description

Description

On this 3 hour workshop you will make a hardback, pamphlet stitched book from start to finish. This is a substantial and hard-wearing book format with a professional finish.

You will stitch your pages, select and attach end pages and make a hardback cover to complete your book. The workshop will be taught in a step by step way in our well equipped studio.

What experience do I need?

This session is suitable for beginners in bookbinding. It would also be useful for those who’ve done some basic bookbinding already and would like to develop their previous skills.

What will I make?

You will come away with an A6 hardback pamphlet stitched book. We will have good quality recycled cartridge paper for the pages, a variety of colourful paper for the end pages, and several colours of buckram to wrap the hard cover. Technical notes to continue developing your skills will also be provided.

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?

All bookbinding tools and materials will be provided. However, if you have some interesting papers which you think would make a good end pages, feel free to bring them along.
