MINIATURE BOOKMAKING WORKSHOP
Press & Release Artists Book Exhibition
8 Adult Participants
This introductory bookmaking course for 8 people took place in The Red Room at Phoenix Brighton during Press & Release Artists Book Exhibition.
Participants were instructed on how to construct a range of miniature books and a storage box from printed sheets of A4 paper.
Exploring basic bookmaking techniques (accordion fold, saddle stitch, bomb-fold, pop-up, collage, movable parts) participants made several books, a box the participants were helped to invent, experiment and collect with their very own library of miniature bookworks in a handmade paper box. Participants were introduced to all the tools and materials used, examples of books made and were given step by step instructions on how to create their own Micro Libraries from specially designed A4 templates.
