The Art Department recently hosted a bookbinding workshop for School staff. Participants learned the art of bookbinding and then used the books that they made for drawing and collage.
Director of Art Ms Elinor Brass tells us more:-
“During the workshop technicians, librarians, teachers from Art, German, Latin, Maths, Economics and Business Studies were given an introduction to the fundamentals of bookbinding and shown how to fold, cut and bind projects. It was really lovely for everyone to get together, learn something new and make time for themselves. Many of those who attended have commented on how they have gone home and continued to work in their books and have plans for further creative projects”
The Art Department invite staff to several Art events each year like the Christmas Wreath Making in December and in November there is a planned workshop exploring Cyanotype photography.
