Surface Decoration & Book Making New dates to be arranged Contact me if there are any dates you specially require
I am running 1, 2 and 3 day workshops looking at surface decoration and book making. I work with small groups of 4-6 people giving you the opportunity for individual development.
If you choose to come for the 3 days, you should make at least 4 books, but you can do a single day if you wish. You can also visit me on Pinterest for more examples of my work and other students ideas.
I run the workshops from Wisteria House, Wickenby, Lincolnshire LN3 5AB The cost of each day is £50 to include some materials, tea, coffee and biscuits together with a light lunch, or you can make it residential for an extra £35 per night or why not bring a partner or guest for an extra £15 a night to include breakfast. There is lots to do in Lincolnshire, having Lincoln on the doorstep with all its historic features. Hemswell, with the largest antiques centre in Europe, and the market towns of Horncastle and Louth.
One bedroom is on the ground floor and the house is accessible for a wheelchair with an ensuite wet room.
If you wish to come by train, we can collect you from either Market Rasen or Lincoln stations. There is an excellent public house 1 mile away for an evening meal or you are 5 miles from Market Rasen or 12 miles from Lincoln. If you wish to keep working, there is a fully fitted kitchen for your use.
Day 1 - Playing with Brusho, dying different weights, colours and textures of papers, printing and making your first book.
Day 2 - Continuation from day 1 and deciding the size of books and making them to your required size.
Day 3 - Making and assembling the books and finishing off. If you have any current work you wish to bring to incorporate in your books, please feel free. Two sewing machines are available for you to use.
The days run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with lunch around 1 p.m. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day.
I am available to run workshops for groups, Guilds and individuals around the country. These can be mini workshops, full day or two days over a weekend. Depending on which type of workshop, various materials are supplied along with a requirements sheet.
