We are very pleased to offer a SPECIAL SESSION in partnership with the National Trust this summer at beautiful Hatchlands Park . This parkland is mentioned in the Domesday Book while the Georgian mansion, built in 1750 by Admiral Boscawen with architect Stiff Ledbetter, has been home to several interesting and historical families over the years.
See Shakespeare’s famous portrait, explore one of Europe’s largest collection of musical instruments, the Cobbe Collection, tour this beautiful and historical mansion and gardens while learning to make your own hand bound books. A great day out with a well made, beautiful book of your own to take home!
“Learn the basics of bookbinding and create your own book. This session covers book boards, papers and cloths, grain, adhesives and pattern making as well as a range of specialist materials and tools to use. Learn reliable techniques for measuring, cutting, aligning, folding, gluing and pressing to produce beautiful, hand-bound books of sound and lasting construction. Students will complete one multi-section, hard cover book making a perfect sketchbook, diary or gift, all under the guidance of expert tutor Meg Green. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided in the price of your ticket.”
