Make a Journal at the London Centre for Book Arts
Angie Lewin leads a workshop focusing on wood engraving and bookbinding. Participants get the opportunity to create a hardback journal on a theme of their choice and receive an introduction to the tools and basic techniques involved during this two day session.
On the first day, participants will receive an introduction to the tools and basic techniques involved, following which they will create their own wood engraved illustration. After working on a practice block, participants then move to their own piece of end-grain work, which are printed in a small edition either by hand or using the printing presses at LCBA. The second day sees participants creating a full cloth-covered, hardback journal incorporating their print on the cover.
