Sue Wood will guide you in making a series of your own books, from simple to complex using two fundamental techniques: the accordion fold and the pamphlet stitch.

Sue will highlight the possibilities each simple book structure can offer for conveying ideas while exploring techniques to embellish covers and begin filling your bespoke books. You will have several handmade books to take home and the knowledge and skills to replicate these structures on your own.

During the lunch break a tour to the Halfway Print Fest will take place so you can view firsthand the work of independent zine-makers, bookmakers, writers, designers and artists from the region and surrounding cities.
