Indigo Ink Tie Dye and Book Binding

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share photos from another workshop that I attended back in May, it was an Indigo ink Tie Dye and book binding workshop held at the Granton Hub in Edinburgh.

It was a fabulous workshop where you learned to Tie Dye fabric with Indigo ink then use your fabric to make a book… the tutors were fabulous Elizabeth and Cassandra .. they can be found here and here if you are looking to do something like this in the future

Here are my photographs from the day…

Book Binding and Botanicals

Hi Everyone!

I attended a workshop on Saturday with a fab tutor Cassandra Barron a.k.a. bookbinding with Cass on Facebook.   The workshop was on botanicals and book binding.. where we drew botanicals from the community gardens and turned them into stamps…

The stamps were then used to create patterned paper, which we then used to cover our book covers and decorating the signatures.

I had a great time and if you fancy booking a class with Cass you can find her on Facebook  here and  book workshops at Eventbrite here

Here are some pictures from the workshop..

Button Hole Book Binding part 2

Hi everyone,

I made another book yesterday with the book binding skills learned from the workshop I attended on Wednesday on button hole book binding..

IMG_0305

For this one I used a 12 x12 chalk board effect paper stack that I bought from the range for £3 and some black and white washi tape I bought from Ikea a while back.

I am really enjoying making books just now, although I have a few projects in the pipeline that I am working on which I will share in the coming weeks..
