Learn how to make a Concertina Book using basic bookbinding techniques and tools.
This wonderfully versatile book resembles a concertina, an instrument similar to an accordion. It is a stitch-less, folded binding that can be creatively adapted to a large range of projects.
This ancient binding method was one of the first bindings to take the book form, it can be read like a book, but its contents are displayed on one continuous folded sheets.
In this 1 hour workshop, Kate Rochester of Hanbury Press will show you how to make a book by hand. You will learn the principles of concertina binding, as well as one method of casing the concertina with cloth covered hard covers. You will get to make your very own concertina book and skills to continue making beautiful notebooks anywhere.
This workshop is part of We Are All Makers with Yodomo and Design District, as part of London Craft Week.
