We had a great box-making workshop last week. It was a popular workshop, and if you missed the chance to book a spot, we have another one coming up in June.
Bookbinding: Drop-spine Box
Saturday 22 June 2013
Learn to make cloth-covered drop-spine (clamshell) boxes, used by libraries, museums, and collectors to store and protect delicate books, prints, or drawings. Once the basics are mastered the construction can be modified for more decorative exteriors, multiple compartments in the inside, and so on. Materials and tools will be provided and participants will leave with a box & written instructions to refresh their memories!
Suitable for all abilities including beginners, with all materials and tools provided.
Tutor: Abigail Uhteg

£35 (£25 for Friends of LCBA http://londonbookarts.bigcartel.com/product/friend-of-lcba-membership)
Letterpress Nights are a chance for people with little to no experience to get to know the workings of a printshop and take home prints of their own in a casual atmosphere.
This workshop is encouraged for people who want to try their hands at letterpress printing. Participants will experience basic type setting, thinking through colour and form, and hand-cranking their original projects on our proofing presses by the end of the night.
