Bullet journals, gratitude journals, art journals, travel journals, photo journals, notebooks, whānau recipe books, the list is endless of what you can make with a few fundamental book-making skills.
In this workshop, you will learn hands-on about the properties of paper, different binding techniques, tips and tricks of making covers and the limitless creative ways these skills can be expressed in your own book making journey.
Who am I? Why do I love books so much? Whilst studying my Art and Science degrees I discovered a need to create my own custom journals that could be used for the diverse mediums and disciplines I was working in. I’m now all grown up, sort of, and work as both an artist and an engineer, and own a company that creates custom journals and portfolios for artists and creative thinkers. As a bibliophile my passion for book binding is not just limited to journals but encompasses the traditional arts such as leather work, embossing, gilding and fore edge art which I will always be happy to share with you. You can check out some of the books and portfolios we make on Instagram and Facebook @lalchimista.art
