Handcraft Your Own Book

Handcraft Your Own Book

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Bookmaking has been around for centuries. These days, books are digitally printed. But what if we could create our own book, using our own materials? When we handcraft our own book, we weave in parts of ourselves and our lives. This is meditative, and our own book becomes our legacy.

Join author Zanni Louise for this one day creative retreat. Zanni has been teaching children and adults to handcraft books for many years. She teaches you simple binding techniques that you can use over and over to create books at home. Your books can be used for journalling, photos, illustration and writing. Additional materials fee $5

What to bring

  • Minimum of 5 photos or 2D images/items of significance
  • Minimum 12 x A4 paper (does not necessarily need to be plain white; can be wrapping paper, wallpaper, cardboard or fabric)
  • Collage items (such as pressed flowers, magazine images, printed quotes) if desired
