Book arts


Throughout the second semester my Moday module was Bookarts. Each session introduced us to a series of stitching techniques and book design based around the tradition of book binding.The sessions were all day and required a level of craft and skill.

This was not my strong point. Thanks to a very patient Helen the aspect of paper folding was made less of a challenge. Each book was crafted within the session and then various stiches were practiced.

The beauty of binding was opening up to the realisation that so much work goes into the crafting of books. e individual consideration to how each project should be developed was extremely interesting. This then required additional thought to how each style could be applied to our projects. Most noted was my project of Grand Parade which was originally an exercise that was carried out at the start of level 5 from a sketch book.
