It’s suitable for illustrators, designers, photographers and writers, both amateurs and professionals, who want to see their work develop into a publication.

The course will see you develop a body of work which will be published in your own, handmade book.

You’ll be shown and guided through the different options you have when it comes to book making.

You’ll develop your InDesign and Photoshop knowledge, expand your design capabilities as well as learn about the different types of books and the skills required to fold, cut, stitch and eventually open your own book.

In preparation for the workshop, you must have an idea of a project you’d like to publish.

gain instruction on both inDesign and Photoshop Software
edit your work into a cohesive, engaging body of work
create a mock up before going to print
make your own publication.
