Event Type

Experience the captivating world of bookbinding at Oude Leeskamer’s niche workshop (max 12 pupils) during your school holiday. Discover the magic of bookbinding and unleash your imagination. Learn traditional techniques from a skilled artists’ book binder, Helene van Aswegen, and transform ordinary pages into extraordinary works of art. For this two day workshop you will explore an alternative binding style known as the flag book. It is a concertina structure with additional pages adhered to the folds to give an ‘pop-up’ effect once opened. This adhesive bound book structure opens up so many possibilities for a creative exploration of image and text. This flag book will be fairly blank with the option to add some basic line drawings or collage. The workshop runs over two days with all materials supplied.
