Bookbinding for Book Artists

led by: Guy Begbie
dates: 14-18 July 2014
times: 9.30am - 4.30pm

This course has finished and will run again in the summer of 2015

Feedback from this years delegates:

" Excellent method of training - i really learned a lot - also the amount of different things you could make and the feeling of confidence to go on"


"Really great tutor - very professional"

The best aspect of the course was learning the different stitches and applying 2 or 3 methods together in one book"

The book is a viable, visual medium that can provide links and meeting points between many art disciplines such as print, painting and sculpture. It is perhaps the most intimate, easily accessible and portable of all the art forms. In this intensive five-day course both traditional and unorthodox bookbinding structures will be taught. The course is designed to be appropriate for people with or without previous experience.
