Lucy Newton August 14 to September 19 2021

 

Stoat, West Lothian

 We are delighted to welcome Lucy Newton back to The Line with a collection of pieces painted during the lockdown. The comfort and solace of the open countryside have been important to many of us over these last months, but to be able to see and to recreate in paint the creatures that are around us is special. Lucy's skills are remarkable and, through her, we can see and appreciate the many birds and animals which live alongside us.

Refillable Notebook Workshop Monday August 9th 2021

Refillable Notebook Workshop
9 August, 1-4pm 

Class limited to 4 participants


Join Edinburgh-based Bookbinder Cass Barron to create an A6 refillable notebook, complete with handy pockets to help organise your note-taking. If you're a stationery lover, everyday sketcher, travel journaller, compulsive list maker or someone that carries around multiple notebooks - this workshop is for you!

This hardback journal features a leather spine threaded with elastic that can house two booklets - meaning that when you have filled a booklet, you can simply remove it, make a new one, reload your book and away you go! This also means you can mix and match your notebooks depending on what you're doing each day.

In the workshop Cass will cover how to construct the outer of your book, attach the spine and add pocket details to the inside, before showing you a nifty way to make hand-stitched notebooks to slot into your book - you'll leave the workshop with a beautiful book that will be a joy to use and the skills to keep refilling it for years to come!

Workshop fee £52.00 to include all materials, but you are welcome to bring along any papers from your own collection that you would like to use in your books - artwork, old maps, wrapping paper etc. work well. If you wish to take a set of bookbinding tools home, these will be available to purchase from Cass for £8, please bring the right change if possible.
