Bookbinding workshops in The Creative Space

NEW for 2017! Beginners Bookbinding workshops

Our Beginners Bookbinding workshops are run once a month on a Saturday afternoon and are already proving popular.

I ran the first workshop last weekend with 2 artists and both students went away with their own hardback, Japanese bound book – and hopefully an insight into how to carry on with their newfound skill.

Aimed at those with little or no experience of binding, we learn how to cover a board with a paper or fabric, assemble the book and stitch with one of the basic Japanese or stab bindings.

If you would like to make a book specific to a project – photography, art or even a wedding perhaps – contact Hannah to discuss.

If you would like to learn this absorbing craft, book onto a workshop either by emailing hello@smallprintcompany.co.uk or via our Eventbrite page (booking fees apply).

Mail Art Project

We have a call out for a new Mail Art project with a nice long deadline (so don’t panic!).

Based upon the new dictionary definition ‘post-truth’, we shall be exhibiting the results in our gallery space in October 2017.

The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is a word or expression chosen to reflect the passing year in language.

 Post-truth has been nominated as the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2016 and is an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’.
