Further Information

The Flag Book is a playful and contemporary book form, and the Fold-out Book is a concertina attached to a traditional case binding. Both can be read like a conventional codex by turning over each page, but can also open out into a panoramic sculptural form to display artwork and text.

This one day workshop is perfect for artists, writers, teachers and anyone interested in making books. You will learn traditional bookbinding skills of cutting, folding and glueing and take home the two books you have made. All materials and tools provided. Places limited to 10.

Megan Stallworthy is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and an associate lecturer in bookbinding at Falmouth University. She runs workshops at arts centres and book festivals in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, and undertakes commissions for new bindings and repairs.
