On Saturday I went on a box-making workshop, run by local bookbinder Corinna Krause. It was an excellent day – I learned a lot, met some new people and came away with a beautiful handmade box that I’ll keep forever.
Corinna has a website, Sollas Bookbinding, where you can find out about her craft, the bookbinding and box-making workshops she runs, and how to buy her products.
I’m hoping to attend one of the bookbinding courses next time; subscribe to the website’s RSS feed to be kept informed of upcoming events.
