Print & Book Making Workshop @36 Lime Street with Theresa Easton


Saturday’s Workshop in Print & Bookmaking @36 Lime Street with Theresa Easton started off with a sunny studio, tea and coffee.  Participants dived into the printmaking materials, creating a wide range of printed pages for 3 different book designs.  The day  flew by and by the afternoon the work table was covered in stitched and folded books.  There was still enough time, just before the end, to see what everyone had made and incorporated into their unique books. The ‘rummage box’ offered some inspiring Japanese Kite Designs donated by Kay Henderson many moons ago.  The next Print & Bookmaking workshop is an evening workshop taking place Tuesday June 25th &  July 2nd 6.30pm-9pm.

If you are keen to try your hand at bookmaking and can’t wait until then, Deidre Thompson will be delivering an inspiring afternoon of bookbinding as part of the BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair June 14th 2013.  For further details, checkout FabuousBooks, FantasticPlaces, part of the Festival of the North East, there’s a lot going on up North! or why not pick up a ‘Make Your Own Book Kit from Northern Print or the Biscuit Factory.  If you need some inspiration why not make it to the Maker Faire at Newcastle’s Centre for Life, Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th April where Theresa Easton will be on hand to provide some instant bookmaking ideas for you to construct yourself and upload pictures to the growing encyclopedia of hand made  @DIY Make Your Own Book Kits.
