Workshops at 4bid are a great way to get a first-hand introduction to the art of bookbinding and printmaking. All of our workshops are taught by practicing artists and craftspeople, in an open and friendly atmosphere. Absolute beginners are more than welcome, and tea and chat is included!

Bookbinding Workshops:
-1.Introduction to Bookbinding, Pamphlets; Stab Bindings; Concertinas
-2.Single sheet Binding
-3.Exposed Back Binding

DESCRIPTION Suitable for complete beginners. During this workshop participants will learn how to fold and manipulate, and will learn three versatile book structures – the pamphlet, the concertina, and the Japanese stab binding – which can be used to present work, to personalise and give as gifts, or as the basis for artists’ books.

On completion of the workshop students will leave with a set of their own books and the skills to make more at home using minimal equipment. Introduction to Bookbinding 1 is the first in a three-part series of introductory bookbinding workshops at 4bid.

You are encouraged, but not required, to take all three workshops in order. Participants to Introduction to Bookbinding 2 will benefit from techniques learned in '1,' and likewise participants to '3' will benefit from techniques learned in '2.' For a complete beginner, taking all three workshops in order will give you a good foundation in bookbinding.
