Hello everyone!

Hope you are very well.

Welcome to our Workshops at 4bid, a great way to get a first-hand introduction or deepening into the art of bookbinding and printmaking.
All of our workshops are taught by practicing artists and craftspeople, in an open and friendly atmosphere.

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

DESCRIPTION Suitable for beginners. During this workshop participants will learn how to fold, cut and manipulate paper, and will master 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, participants 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.
