During this 4-day workshop we will work on how to make new children’s books – from words to image, from sewing to cover – .
We will develop childproof bookbinding structures, learn how to make a protective jacket to preserve your own favorite book from childhood.

  • Illustration and words: introducing children’s books; visual and practical exercises.
  • Coherence between structure and content: discussing the contents of the books models and presenting new structures.
  • Making a leather binding and an experimental book.
  • The portaFIABE (Tales bearer): a book-in-progress

All the basic materials will be prepared by the teacher and included in the workshop fee, yet participants will be given, together with the individual tools list, a list of specific items and materials to bring, to work on the contents of their books.

The course will be taught in English.
