This one day workshop will teach students how to make a sketchbook with a decorative sewn spine and fold out pages. The beauty of this book structure is the sewing allows the book to be filled after making and it opens flat for ease of drawing and sketching. Cover papers will be made using printmaking techniques inspired by the building of Riddle’s Court. No experience is needed.
