Art Students’ Bookbinding Workshops

The Art and Creative Technology department was visited by Hope Fitzgerald, a creative artist, bookbinder and owner of the business Bindfulness, for a series of bookbinding workshops.

Students in the Fifth (Year 10), Six One (Year 12) and Six Two (Year 13) had the opportunity to make their own hand-crafted sketchbooks based on the skills Hope taught them. The visiting artist also brought in a selection of her beautiful pieces for students to admire and take inspiration from.

Hope produces and sells beautiful handmade notebooks, artist sketchbooks, diaries, miniature books and bespoke books, all of which are hand stitched and bound nearby in Faversham, Kent. Students were delighted to draw on her knowledge in creating their own books.
