Techniques will include the use of soluble fabric, hand and machine stitching

A three day course with Frances Pickering

This year Frances has designed a special WRAP in which to keep your hand

made books

Using easily obtained and basic materials to make a series of three or four,

small books on a subject of your choice.

Each book could be part of a collection of items (subjects) which could be

divided into individual books.

We will also construct a clever protective wrap with pockets to keep the

books in.

Pictures will be available soon
