Museum of East Anglian Life
Bookbinding with Bev the Binder
To accompany our latest exhibition 'An Anecdotal Eye: The Work of Thomas Bewick' discover the art of bookbinding on a one day course with Bev the Binder.
Bev Woolner is the resident craftsman on this day course. Since starting his apprenticeship in the bookbinding industry in 1963, Bev has worked his way up from journeyman bookbinder, through firms such as George Garnham’s and Jarrold’s of Norwich, before setting up his own bindery specialising in hand bound bespoke bindings.
Come and learn from Bev’s wealth of skills and experience as you make two notebooks in the traditional way – a single fold and a side sewn – using equipment from the Museums collection.
The course will run twice over the duration of the exhibition, on Saturday 15th February 2014 10am-4pm.
All workshops and talks should be paid for at the time of booking. A refund can only be given if 4 weeks notice of cancellation is received (less £5 administration fee). A replacement person to the workshop or talk is of course acceptable. Full refunds will be made immediately if the session is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.
