Brockworth WI with their finished notebooks

WI Cooper’s Hill and Brockworth

Crumps Barn Studio was invited to join the WI Cooper’s Hill and Brockworth craft group and teach members how to bind their own hand bound hardback notebook. The group was lively and very good fun indeed. Everyone gamely tackled the confusing book binder’s knot and mastered the intricacies of making their own fabric cover.

The first photograph was taken halfway through the evening as everyone applied wheat starch glue to the book block and prepared to add the end papers. We all look like we’re concentrating very hard!
