Bookbinder Cass Barron and Artist Kit Martin have teamed up to bring you this blue themed workshop, which combines cyanotype printing & bookbinding techniques, resulting in a collection of unique books with decorative chain stitching.
Via a series of comprehensive and practical video tutorials, Kit will introduce the cyanotype process and guide you in creating a range of eye-catching prints onto paper, working with found materials, such as botanicals, lace and feathers.
Cass will then show you how to make a hardback book with decorative triple chain stitch and envelope insert, plus a bundle of single chain stitch notebooks with the option to incorporate your prints into the cover and/or inside pages.
The videos can be worked through at your own pace and you will have continued access. Upon booking you will receive access to a passwrod protected webpage with the video tutorials, information on materials and where to source them, plus an inspiring photo gallery which shares the work of past participants to help generate ideas for your printmaking and bookbinding.
Kits for this workshop are now sold out but upon booking a comprehensive materials/tool list will be shared with you detailing everything you need, which should be easy to gather from online suppliers and craft stores.
A laptop or mobile device that you can watch the video tutorials on and access the zoom sessions (if you would like to). A pair of scissors and a cutting mat or chopping board.
