Book binding & botanical inks for beginners


Join Prints By Nature for a magical day - learn how to bind your own travel-size notebook and create your own selection of botanical inks. This is perfect for anyone who is a little creative and curious about nature.

Maybe you've always been intrigued by making inks and botanical watercolours, but was in need of some friendly guidance. Your lovely host Zoe will share the traditional methods for making both, so you'll have the confidence to continue practising both at home.

This 8-hour workshop will cover all the basics of bookbinding and ink making:

Making fabric book cloth
Backing & binding
Prepping & creating inks
Modifying colours & bottling
Preserving finished inks

All equipment and tools will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own fabric. If you're feeling extra creative why not bring in a few of your own foraged or homegrown finds? Zoe recommends berries and late blooming garden flowers - you'll be amazed when you discover how you can transform these in your practice. 

Please note: this workshop requires the use of craft knives, rotary cutters and scalpels so is not suitable for children under the age of 16, unless accompanied by an adult.

£110 per person
