Hand made books

Paper manufacture is the third largest user of fossil fuels worldwide. The workshop offers students the chance to think about recycling and what it means to them, both locally and globally.

We will be discussing the effects of over-logging (with nearly half of all wood harvest being used for paper manufacture) and the importance of trees to the environment. Students will learn some interesting facts about paper-waste and what can be done to prevent this.

This workshop gives you the opportunity to explore hand-made books using all sorts of recycled papers. These can include papers made from natural materials, newspapers, comics, magazines, envelopes, old wrapping papers etc. Students are encouraged to bring along any interesting recycled papers or packaging that they may have at home or have found.

Students will be able to make a totally unique and interesting hand-made book to use as a diary or notebook that is environmentally sound and aesthetically pleasing.

The workshop will be appropriate for different ages and abilities and is suitable for further development at school.
