On this one day workshop, you will be introduced to some techniques of creating one-of-a-kind books. You will make a tactile multi-section binding. This idiosyncratic book can contain different coloured paper covers enhanced with a decorative buttonhole stitch on the spine to assemble the sections.
You will take home a unique handmade book, which can be used as a resonant starting point for your own visual journal.
