Typeset, print and stitch your own series of notebooks in this collaborative letterpress and bookbinding workshop with Ann Ong and Phoebe Todd-Parrish.
Part 1 at Bright Press (formerly Whiteman Park Print Shop) will introduce the basics of letterpress, where participants will learn to hand-typeset book covers and pages for a collaborative book project.
In part 2 of the workshop at MJAC, learn three different methods of book binding to assemble your notebooks: Japanese stab stitching, pamphlet stitch, and concertina binding. Students will create their very notebooks with personalised covers and also create a collaborative concertina-bound album of the quotes printed by the class in part 1.
Participants need only to bring along a meaningful/motivational quote or one-liner to print into the workshop’s collaborative book. Finished books may be exhibited in the Made Here By Hand community exhibition in November.
