Course description

Learn Bookbinding for Beginners in Sydney.

Learn how to make beautiful handmade books for either your own personal use as a journal, sketch-book or notebook; or give them as a much appreciated gift to a loved one. A perfect and unique present at any time of the year.

We have a series of unique Bookbinding Workshops available for you. This workshop focuses on the Tunnel Book Structure.

Learn here how to create the fun books that are “read” through a hole in the cover.

Tunnel books date all the way back to the mid-18thcentury, where the concept of Tunnel books was inspired by theatrical stage sets and throughout history, tunnel books have often been used to commemorate certain events.

Each cut-out page features openings that allow the reader to see through from the entire book to the back cover. The images on each page work together to form a three-dimensional scene inside the book that tells a story . (Please note, plenty of inspiration is given to help you illustrate your story).
