About the event
£12 per person.
Fancy making your own notebook? Select your own colour of the cover, images to put in - we'll have a range of arty and foody images as usual, along with a selection of old maps and other photos to work with. You'll be supported to punch your own cover holes, cut and fit the pages and wire bind the final book. After embossing and number-stamping your notebook, one of our team will grade your work - will it be a perfect Red, a perfectly-fine Green or peculiarly individual Blue? The workshop space is fully accessible and Inky Fingers has a number of tools to aid all abilities to participate. If you want to check in about your own requirements, give Stuart a shout email@example.com
About Inky Fingers
Inky Fingers Printshop is a repurposing project with high environmental and social values. We make notebooks from old hardback books and gift tags from post-consumer office surplus. Our volunteer team share a passion for doing good by example and supporting each other in our endeavours. Tasks involve measuring, cutting, binding and glueing using a variety of machines and tools.
Our notebooks are graded by the quality of our work, not size or scarcity of the covers. Each has been fitted with new fly-leaves, usually illustrations and photographs that we've rescued from other books; and the pages are post-consumer waste paper - they're randomly assorted including colours, graph, laid and lined papers. Each book is unique and a one-off. They make a personal and characterful addition to any busy or creative person's arsenal, for doodling, listing, sketching or even plotting out that next big project.
