Bookbinding workshop in France in July 2009
Hi everyone.� I have some exciting news!� I have arranged to give a 5 day miniature bookbinding course in France in July 2009.� By the end of the course you will know everything I know about making miniature books!� You will have a chance to consolidate your skills so that you can really master the techniques taught and you will have fun whilst you are about it.� You will be working with the finest materials (the secret to making the finest books) and I can guarantee that you will be thrilled with what you learn and with what you produce.� Beginners welcome � the only requirement is an ability to follow instructions and to see.
The setting is the beautiful Les Hallais, which is near Le Mans in the north east of France.� Easily reachable by Euro Star through the chunnel and then a short hop to St Pierre sur Erve.� (Sorry, a somewhat longer hop for those of you in America but you could plan it into a holiday in Europe.)� Accommodation is on site and all meals are included, as is wine with dinner.� (I will try to bring some South African wines for you to try.)� An added bonus is a wonderful miniature museum on site.
All the details about the course are on my web site.� Click on the link �Courses�. ��You can find out all about Les Hallais and the courses on offer from their web site, also listed below.
This is a first call for anyone who might be interested � I realize it is still some time in the future but I would like to get a database together of POSSIBLE takers.� We need a minimum of 6 participants if the course is to happen � so bring a friend!� Maximum number of participants is 10.� If you snooze � you loose!
Best wishes to you all
Some new books are on the horizon � I will keep you informed.
