A Day Making an Artist’s Sketch Book

Tanja Bolenz’ workshop was a place of peaceful busyness. We managed quite a lot in the day but it seemed as if there was no rush at all. The binding itself was quite straightforward – when taken in stages – but looked very complicated to start with. Tanja took us through each stage, by showing us what to do, then getting us to do it. Not always as easy as it sounds. The idea of providing a really sturdy cover and a book that opens completely flat is so useful. Tanja provided all the materials to make the book and  a good selection of coloured papers, all cut to size. Helen Cooper
