Full Event Information

Join new tutor Maggie who will guide you through the processes to make a Dos a Dos Journal.

The Dos a Dos (Tacket stitch) Journal workshop is suitable for beginners and will cover a different style of journal making and a new stitch to the previous 3 Journals Booklet workshop.

The double journal features a lined notebook and a plain notebook all within one cover. The lined notebook is pre-cut, the plain one will give you practice in how to cut and fold signatures (inserts) with precision.

You will make up a cover from hand-made paper and cut out patterned signature wrappers. These can be full sized or half/quarter sized depending on personal choice.

The cover is then decorated and you will learn Tacket Stitch, an ancient stitch which has been dated to the 2nd Century and involves knotting and twisting. This is a very decorative, tactile stitch and can be done in several colours for additional decorative effect.

A ribbon closure will be added to complete your Dos a Dos Journal.

Cost £30 to include all materials, tea and coffee.

Cancellation deadline: 28th September

This event runs from 1pm - 3pm
