I've been Bookbinding!

Not something I thought I'd actually do as a Course, but this came up on my Facebook recently mentioned by a friend locally - thought 'why not' and went along yesterday to:


facebook page:



Had a brilliant day and actually made this book...

from scratch - cut the paper, boards, binding etc and chose the cover paper, inset paper








The group of 8 students enjoyed the challenges of learning something like this from beginning to completion of their books.

Our tutor:

Mandy Flockton


Enjoyed the day so much that I may well book to do the

MIDORI TRAVELLER'S NOTEBOOK course sometime in the future.


( Very quick sketch whilst Mandy was paper cutting huge amounts of paper on a huge machine)

Well done Ann, I like the cover very much as I love squirrels :) Something different and I'm sure the day was very interesting.

Isn't it fun???? Nothing like learning a new skill and having a finished product at the end of the day! AND one you can USE ♥♥♥♥ LOVE your book! :D

ann @ studiohyde said...

Absolutely and a fun day too.

Judy said...

Wow, that looks fabulous! So professional! Love the cover!

Thanks Judy, I am quite proud of it. Although, I have to admit, it isn't completely symmetrical. I don't mind that though, at least I made it from scratch. Looking forward to going on another workshop day and make a traveller's journal.
