Edinburgh-based bookbinder Cass Barron and writer Julie Galante are teaming up to deliver a special letter-themed workshop for Book Week Scotland 2020. Inspired by this year’s festival theme, this workshop invites you to create a book of memories and letters to the future, resulting in a unique personal project or gift for a loved one.

Via a live Zoom event and a series of pre-recorded online tutorials, Cass and Julie will lead you through the making process and provide you with writing guidance and exercises that explore themes of self-reflection, hopes, and ambitions for the future, resulting in a hand-bound collection of uplifting, inspiring and poignant letters.   

A kit containing all the tools and materials you will need is included in the workshop – this consists of bookbinding tools, a range of recycled, vintage and decorative papers, stamps, and a few surprises.

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as those with writing and/or bookbinding experience. You don’t have to consider yourself a maker or a writer to take part – Julie and Cass will guide you through and will be available to answer questions along the way.

Accessibility information: Please contact the organiser in advance.
