Whether you want to show your own art in another format or make sketchbooks from scratch, artists’ books offer lots of exciting possibilities.  Individual watercolours can be turned into beautiful book pages or used to create contemporary book covers.  Using shapes, folds and stitches, and combining text with interesting materials you can challenge the idea of what a book is and create works of art that don’t need to be framed and hung on walls.  Details about Marion and her bookbinding workshops at www.theoldprintingworks.co.uk  Free event.  10 spaces available only.  Venue: Gallery II within the exhibition.
