Crafts: Artist's Books

Join book artist Mary Pullen Deacon on a creative journey to seek inspiration, design and create content and bind your own unique artist’s book. You will engage in a guided tour of Essex Record Office, led by Valina Bowman-Burns, during which you can take photographs, make notes and drawings. Returning to the workshop, Mary will give instruction in elements of book design and you will use traditional book binding tools and techniques to create a hand made book work including lettering, illustration and decoration.
