Some artists joined me in my workshop for a happy day of book construction. The mist swirled outside whilst we sewed and folded. Satisfying and therapeutic work.
Some glowing work by artist Anne Hunter who came along to the artist bookmaking workshop back in August, and then made a this delightful bird after the Open Studio in September. The delicate tea-light holders are made from wire and papier mache formed around a mould.

Thank you to all the bookmakers at last week's workshop. Under Rachel Hazell's expert guidance we had 2 days of folding, stitching and making - creative bliss.
The world’s favourite travelling bookbinder, Rachel Hazell, is coming to Hazel's studio to teach creative bookbinding and bookart using fabrics and paper.
Day one: A multitude of sewn structures
Day two: Creation of a Textile Narrative of your own.
This will be an opportunity to explore text, texture, stitching in the context of storytelling. The unique combination of location, paper, fabric and linen thread, with the luxury of two whole days, will result in utterly personal bookart wonders. Absolutely no previous experience required but a love of books and stitch essential.
More details, and how to book are on the workshop page.
