On Day 1 we will explore two methods of creating decorative paper. Suminagashi is a Japanese marbling technique using only ink, water and the movement of air to create beautiful designs. Paste paper involves brushing coloured paste onto paper and drawing implements through the paste to create patterns, often having a 3D appearance.

On Day 2 you will learn the basic bookbinding skills of cutting, pasting and binding using your decorative papers, create a truly unique portfolio case.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with some bookbinding experience.
