Arnolfini - est 1961

Presented as part of Bristol Artists Book Event #BABE2019 | In this workshop you will learn to make three simple books with just folding and cutting. 3 books constructed without glue or thread!

One of the books have pockets for the content and two have pages that can be taken out and changed. The cuts in the pages are held in place by strips cut in the cover or by a folded spine.

You will make three small models and you can continue to work and explore these structures at home without lots of equipment.


This is a 90 minute workshop for participants of all skill levels and all materials will be provided. 

Venue – Light Studio, Level 2, Arnolfini.
