DESCRIPTION

This special course combines the art of book-making with the opportunity to express yourself in paint. The hardback, blank-paged, A6 book you make will have a hand-painted cover, coloured endpapers and a hand-stitched text block made from exotic recycled paper. The course is a fabulous introduction to the hobby of making books and to the painting techniques of expressionistic art. Equipment used is non-specialist, so you can continue book-making at home, and step by step illustrated online tutorials are exclusively available to help you.

Suitable for all ages, but children under 14 taking part must be accompanied by a participating adult.
