Workshop: Decorative Spine Sewn Book ( Woven Spine)

Offered by Primrose Paper Arts

and taught by

Jean Riley
Saturday September 8 2018

Never done a workshop with Jean, or are you eager to try another one?  Perhaps you’ve never sewn a book spine before.  Well, this is your opportunity.  Frankly, whether you are just starting out in book-making or have some experience you will benefit from learning from Jean.

As one of the 5 authors of the book Paper: Handmade Style (in collaboration with Jeanette Bakker, Jill Elias, Helen Hill and Marie Waterhouse) Jean has been working with paper and making a variety of books for many years and is well recognised for her beautifully created works.

In this one-day workshop Jean will be showing participants a particular type of weaving that forms an attractive ‘diamond’ grid-like pattern down the length of the spine, and each person will create a book with a return cover as shown in the lovely example in the photo to the right.

In addition, later during the day, she will guide the class through the steps to make a fitted slip cover in which the book will live (well, let’s face it, after all that hard work you want to look after it, don’t you?).

Note: If you think you might be short of supplies don’t worry, Jean will be supplying all the materials to complete the project.  A small materials fee applies.
