Tutor: Eilis Murphy

Date: Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th March

This course is suitable for: Beginners & Intermediate.

In this two-day workshop, participants will create a Secret Belgain Binding with the guidance of bookbinder Éilís Murphy // Folded Leaf. This hardback book has a distinctive thread pattern on the cover which wraps around the spine. These books lie out flat when opened and are ideal for sketchbooks, amongst other things.

We will start by creating your own patterned paper using a foam printing process which is done by hand – so easy to repeat again at home! This patterned paper will be used for the covers of your book.

Participants will also gain knowledge of how to use basic book binding tools and the principals of bookbinding including grain direction, gluing and folding tips.

Participants need to bring:
Stanley knife/scapel, cutting mat, ruler, pencil, apron

All other materials will be supplied.

Use the promo code 'secret' at checkout to avail of a 10% early bird discount. Available until 10th February.

Please note there is a minimum requirement of participants, if not reached course is subject to cancellation. A full refund will be issued in this event.
