About the Event

April's box will contain all the items you need to complete this month's craft project: a trio of notebooks using three different bookbinding techniques. This box's live stream workshop will air on Sunday 18th April at 1pm. You will receive your box a couple of days beforehand. If you're unable to attend the workshop, you'll have access to a recording of it following its release. The video will be available the week after the live stream workshop.

Your workshop leader will be Cass Barron, who will be streaming the workshop from her base in Edinburgh to share her passion for bookbinding with you.  Cass discovered bookbinding when studying Fine Art and making her own sketchbooks and since 2019 has been focused on sharing her skills and inspiring others through her workshops.  We've teamed up for this workshop to bring you the perfect introduction to this varied and immensely satisfying craft - once you have the tools and the know how you can repurpose almost any paper into a book!

In this workshop, Cass will take you through 3 different bookbinding techniques to create a set of three matching but different books.  You'll learn how to make a book using pamphlet stitch, Japanese stab binding and a simple fold book - with enough materials included to make two of each book in total.

The following will be in your box:

  • Awl
  • Bookbinding needle
  • Bookbinding thread
  • Glue
  • Selection of plain and decorative paper (please note the decorative paper will be different from that shown in the picture; you will choose your theme)
  • Selection of clips and beads
  • Piece of cork

The box will contain enough materials to make 6 books in total.  All you'll need to provide is scissors, a ruler and a cutting mat. You can also bring your own decorative papers to incorporate into your books.

You'll be able to upgrade your April box with extras to include double materials to make more books in the same or a different decorative theme or add in some vintage themed paper; you'll receive a link to the upgrades after you buy.

If you're buying this box for someone else, you can include their details at the check out.  The box will be sent directly to the recipient's address, and we will send email instructions for the live stream workshop to their email address.
