Each of your pages will be assembled using collage, mixed media and stitch making the book totally unique and personal. You will than learn how to build your book creating a hard cover and use simple Japanese binding techniques to join your pages.
This is a great way to experiment with techniques such as stitch, collage and surface decoration to make something that is personal to you. Once your range of sheets is complete you start the exciting process of putting your papers and fabrics together and learn how to assemble them into the form of a book. You can make any size of scrap-book you wish and create it for a special purpose either to keep all those important bits and bobs you can never find a place for, perhaps a scrap book, or maybe a photograph album the choice is yours….! No experience necessary just bring enthusiasm.
