PRINT & PAPER WEEK :
Tuesday 23rd June - Sunday 28th June
For 2015 we are building upon the fantastic success of our Book Arts Week in 2014. We are adding some Print-making and not doing any actual making of books. Hence the name change. The good news is that all the wonderful Tutors will still be here.
Victoria Hall will still be doing Decorated Paste Papers and Paper Marbling, but she'll tailor her workshops towards the Collage and Print-making workshops.
Mark Hearld will return to do a two day Collage workshop.
Thomas Martin will use his extensive skills and experience as a printmaker during his 2 day Print-making workshop.

WILLOW SCULPTURE WORKSHOP
Thursday/Friday 17th & 18th September
Joy Whiddett will again take this two day Willow Sculpture workshop. Last year everyone made at least one sculpture and many of our participants made two. It depends on how big and how complicated your subject is and how quickly you take to the process. The wonderful heron shown left was one of the final sculptures made by a complete novice under Joy's expert guidance.
PAPER MARBLING WORKSHOP
Thursday/Friday 8th & 9th October
This is a specialist workshop primarily aimed primarily at serious bookbinders and book conservators. The Tutor for this workshop is internationally known expert Victoria Hall. Victoria is a fantastic teacher who demonstrates a range of techniques in a sequential way to allow participants to build a stunning portfolio of quite amazing papers.
We have run this workshop many times in previous years and the outcomes and feedback have been exceptional.
FELT HAT MAKING WORKSHOP
Friday 23rd October
This one day workshop has been our longest running workshop and we are offering it again for 2015. Each participant learns how to make felt in the morning and by 4pm the same day has made a hat for themselves - like the one shown left.
