About the course:
Not happy with the sketchbooks in art supply shops? In this one day course you will make a sketchbook which has the flexibility of a notepad but the strength and solidity of a hard cover bound, stitched book. Starting with 5 full sheets of quality art paper you will fold them down into sections and then proceed with the binding.
Materials will be supplied including 5 sheets of paper.
The selection of paper will be Canaletto Gr. Gross Bianco 160gsm, Fabriano Tiepolo Bianco 290 gsm, Fabriano Rosapina Bianco 220 gsm.
Tools will be provided. The bindery is fully equipped. However, students can bring their own tools.
Good eye/hand coordination and good dexterity are necessary for this course as sharp knives are used in the cutting of board and paper.
You will be shown correct procedure in the use of these tools but good co-ordination will assure accurate cutting and prevention of injury.
Please wear closed in shoes.
The bindery will be open by 9am. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be supplied. There will be a lunch break of 30 minutes. It is recommended that you bring your lunch. There is a fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the bindery. Shops and cafes are not close.
