For Intermediate level bookbinders
Design and create a unique artist’s journal. It can be a travel diary, photo album, sketch or notebook. Using a simple binding technique, Jean Kropper will show you effective ways to personalise your journal to suit your needs.
Choose a cover from the range of leather and suede provided, then build your journal using the cartridge paper provided. If you prefer, you can bring your own specialty papers for inside your book, for example pastel, drawing or watercolour papers (A3 size). You can bring a couple A3 sheets of your own artworks, gift wrap, coloured or patterned paper to add character and an individual touch.
Jean will guide you through the process of planning your journal, cutting the covers, folding the papers accurately, piercing sections and binding it all together. All tools and equipment supplied.
Jean Kropper has worked in fine art, graphic design and in paper engineering in the USA and Australia and has taught hand bookbinding, papermaking, and 3D paper art in the USA, Canada and throughout Australia.
Bookbinding experience is required for this workshop.
