This workshop invites you to create a book of memories and letters to the future, resulting in a unique personal project or gift for a loved one.
Via a live Zoom event and a series of pre-recorded online tutorials, Cass and Julie will lead you through the making process and provide you with writing guidance and exercises that explore themes of self-reflection, hopes, dreams and ambitions for the future, resulting in a hand-bound collection of uplifting, inspiring and poignant letters.
The book structure will involve making and decorating envelopes, stitching them together using an exposed French link stitch and adding a hard front and back cover – a great structure for storing your own writing as well as cards and letters you have received.
A kit containing all the tools and materials you will need is included in the workshop – this consists of good quality bookbinding tools, a range of recycled, vintage and decorative papers, stamps, stickers and a few surprises… trust us when we say it will be a joy to open!
Workshop participants will receive an invite to a 1.5-hour Zoom live event. This is an opportunity for Julie and Cass to welcome you to the workshop, go through how it will run, introduce what’s in your kit, share some examples and answer any of your questions.
Following this session you will be given access to Julie and Cass’s ‘how to’ video instructions and an invite to re-group a few weeks later to share your creations as part of a Zoom live sharing event.
