Book Binding workshop with Shirley Williams

February 2019

In this workshop Shirley showed the group a wide range of books that were bound using a variety of sewn techniques. It was very inspiring to see the different sizes, shapes, techniques, embellishments and finishes that can be used. The group then made their own books, some covered in fabric, some with paper, some had postcard covers and others felt. Binding techniques included traditional sewn, Japanese and Coptic (Egyptian).

Just look at the range of books produced during the workshop.
