Cass is excited to share this bookbinding kit and video tutorial with you – a class she generally runs in the lead up to Christmas, this is a great way to use smaller bits of leather/pleather/paper that have accumulated throughout the year, plus - the books make great personalised gifts!
Cass's videos are friendly, comprehensive and take you through each part of the process step by step – you will have continued access so can rewind, re-watch and revisit at a later date. Learn how to prepare your pages, make a template, punch holes and bind 4 books together, each with a different exposed stitch. Then experiment with 4 nifty ways to fasten your books using buttons, elastic and a leather/pleather wrap around.
This workshop is suitable for bookbinding beginners, adults and children aged 10+ (depending on sewing experience, adult help/supervision might be necessary).
Cass's tutorials will equip you with everything you need to know to make a library full of mini (A8 sized) books – perfect for taking out and about, keeping notes & lists, writing daily gratitudes, gifting to friends and family…you name it!
There is an optional kit to go with this workshop – this comes with or without the bookbinding tools and contains leather or pleather book covers in a range of colours. Also included in the kit is a stack of eco copy paper cut to size and a collection of lovely decorative papers, buttons, threads and fastenings to include in your books.
These kits have been put together with the environment and sustainability in mind – from the handcrafted awl and tools made from recycled materials to the quality remnant leather and paper off-cuts. Cass believes in squeezing every last bit of creativity out of materials, and looks forward to showing you how to give the items in your kit a new lease of life as unique and usable books!
Yummy Chai tea from Eteaket and Divine fairtrade dark chocolate coins are also included in each kit to bring some festive vibes and fuel your creativity!'
