How about making a book

Our son had a holiday project from school, related to various Christmas traditions in different cultures. He had chosen Finland, funnily enough, and of course there were quite a few differences to cover in comparison to the British traditions. But what shape and form should the project take, he wondered... My first suggestion in pretty much every such situation is always "How about making a book?" which to my surprise was this time welcomed as a viable option! He hasn't been too eager to try his hand at bookbinding before. So I finally got to teach him a simple process, and he was no different from the other children who get to make their first book from scratch: "I hadn't realised how much FUN it is to make a book with my own hands!!!! I want to make millions more!!!!!"

Hi Tia, it’s a fantastic idea to make your own book for your essay project. I did use to teach bookbinding and book art workshops regularly but unfortunately no longer do. Depending on where you are, I can certainly give you some contacts and get you learning bookbinding :)

Hi, my name is Tia and I am an A-level photography student. I’m writing an essay, and as a way of putting it all together I want to book bind it all and personally learn the skill of it. It would be so special to learn how to make my own book. I was wondering if you do workshops? Or even a private class?
I hope this is possible.

Kind regards,
Tia
