Description

Start your bookbinding journey in the comfort of your own home at completely your own pace. Detailed clear demo videos show you the processes step by step so you can pause, skip or re-watch to your hearts content. The kit provided ensures that you'll not only have everything you need for the course but to be able to carry on afterwards too. I can be available via email and WhatsApp to answer questions if needed (by arrangement).

Work with traditional book binding materials and techniques and get creative with alternative structures and styles.

You will begin by learning to cut and stitch the pages and use canvas to create a hardback cover, resulting in a gorgeous hard back book. You will then be able to go onto exploring larger, designs with a variety of techniques, covers and materials.

You will finish the course with at least 2 gorgeous books and the skills to continue creating afterwards. This series of exercises is the equivalent of a full day course including making time and will enable you to feel confident enough in the process to keep making books afterwards.

Please choose from the following colour themes: Autumn, Summer or Aqua. And the name / message you would like engraved onto the top of your book press (that's included in the kit). Please message me with your choices and the address you would like your kit sent to. Please allow 7 - 10 days for delivery of your kit.

What's included in the price?

All your materials and tools are included as well as all the video tutorials that you will need. Help is also available via WhatsApp and email.

What you will need

A clean and clear work area big enough to spread out a number of materials, books and tools. Scrap white paper (unused print outs or photocopies are ideal or cheap white paper) for gluing and protecting your book. Paper scissors and a pencil. A device with a large enough screen to view the tutorials and the ability to play sound.

Couldn’t believe how you managed to incorporate all your crafts from the week into your gorgeous book. Amazing! Such a star. Thanks Rozie.

After attending the one day course, 'Sketch-booking for New Artists, Journals, Keep Sake Books and Coursework' I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel and any of the courses she offers.

Prior to my visit I let her know exactly what I was trying to achieve in my own art book; areas I was finding difficult and techniques I'd like to experiment with. On my arrival everything had been well prepared in advance and things we would need carefully laid out.

I found Rachel extremely knowledgable and a great teacher. Nothing was too much trouble, anything I asked for appeared and I felt totally indulged and spoilt.

The day was fun, I learned loads and thoroughly enjoyed my day in the studio.

Best wishes
Sandra

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Hi Rachel,

We have received three 'parcels' and a dropbox link to 30 videos.

We haven't got the chance to 'éxamine' the materials in detail so far. However, at a glance, we should have enough information to make a book. :)

Thank you very much for reaching out to us - greatly appreciate.

Kind regards,

Paul

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much for letting me know you’ve received everything Paul. Please do let me know if you have any questions or need any help. Enjoy bookbinding! All the best. Rach
