With a little patience and skill, almost any cloth can be turned to book cloth. In this workshop participants will make their own samples of book cloth, both lined and starch filled, using a vast array of fabrics, and experimenting with various ways of adding colour and texture.

This course is part of the Maker’s Mess 2020 series which focuses on making materials and exploring techniques for customizing the look of your books.
