About the Course
Try your hand at making these miniature books which can be made into necklaces, keyrings or even Christmas ornaments. During this 3 hour workshop you will make two different styles of mini books.
Join us to make a keyring notebook and two mini books which can be used as Christmas tree decorations.
We will make a long stitch sewn notebook which we will attach to a keyring. This note book is approx 5cm x 4cm.
The two mini notebooks/ornaments will be 3cm x 2cm.
Both make great gifts and Christmas stocking fillers.
Emily Northen - With a strong belief in the power of the written word and a lifelong love of books, I have been making my own books since childhood. It was not until many years later living in Sienna, Italy that in 2013 I first studied the art of bookbinding. Since then my passion has been fueled and I am continuously learning both in workshops and classes, and through my own curiosity and experimentation. Today my custom made journals and sketchbooks are sold internationally, and it is my joy to share and teach journal making workshops in Gloucestershire.
