Star books with Carole King at Stiwdio 3

Bird themed star book created by Carole King.


Make and fill a beautiful Star book with Carole King.

Star books are made from a series of interleaved concertina folds, placed one behind the other, usually pierced to reveal the layer behind. Images are added to create a series of panoramas or scenes in frames. At least six sections need to be completed to make a star.
They are often displayed in the round creating a star shape when viewed from the top - hence the name.

Carole King regularly leads bookbinding workshops for us. This one is slightly different because filling in the pages is an integral part of the workshop. Carole is a painter, printmaker and artist as well as a talented bookbinder so she has the skills to encourage your book’s content out of you and onto the pages.

There will be collage materials provided on the day but to get the best out of the course it is a good idea to start squirrelling away bits and pieces that take your fancy as you come across them. These could be pictures and text from magazines, books destined for recycling, sweet wrappers - anything you find pleasing and you would like to see inside the pages of your book! If you are stuck for ideas take a look at the ones Carole has made. Beautiful!

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Your course fee includes tuition by Carole, use of equipment and all the materials you will need to construct your book. There will be collage materials available but bringing along your own stash will help you unleash your creativity. After all, art is like a cup of tea - it needs time to brew!
Refreshments are available from our ground floor cafe.
