The Secret Belgian Binding Book
The Secret Belgian Binding is another technique credited to the legendary bookmaker Hedi Kyle. It’s woven stitched cover looks so effective once completed and the ‘secret’ is in its construction. In this workshop you will make two A5 books and learn two ways to share in the secret! This is a great ‘lie flat’ book that can be used for a notebook or sketchbook and it always becomes a talking point. Most materials will be pre cut and provided to enable you to take home some great examples. All you will need to do is personalise it with your choice of cover paper and it’s a perfect time of year to think about making them as a gift!

This alternative photographic process is renowned for producing beautiful prints in shades of Prussian blue and white.
Using a mix of natural materials, found items and images on transparencies we’ll produce photograms that can stand alone or be used to add other imagery to.
