A book is a container where an idea can grow and be nurtured.
Join Meredith Paterson as she shows you how to make your own book. In these 2-hour workshops you will be introduced to pamphlet stitch, a simple and versatile binding method. It is a great place to start if you are interested in book making. You will leave with a soft-covered book where your own ideas can flourish.
We are offering two sessions, 10am–12pm & 2–4pm.
Spaces are limited, please book now to avoid disappointment.
At 12.30pm a public demonstration of book binding will be presented in the Reading Room outside the Deane and Hirschfeld Galleries on level 1. Take the time to see Ana Iti: I must shroud myself in a stinging nettle in these adjacent galleries which this workshop is being presented in association with.
