Manuscript Book Design with Josie Brown

November 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This workshop will begin with a short overview of historical MS page design and then examine a range of contemporary hand-written books in terms of the bindings as well as what they have inside – to open up the box of possibilities.  This will be followed by a couple of small group activities to enlarge on the working process of designing MS books and then explore a range of stress-free processes suitable for use within already-bound books, since many of us have several bindings we’re afraid of filling!


Workshop Fee
  • £18: SLLA/NLLA members
  • £20: non-members

We welcome everyone to join our workshops, but offer priority booking for our members until 8 weeks prior to the event. If you are a non-member, you can register your interest for the workshop and your place will be confirmed once priority booking closes. If you’d like to join SLLA and receive priority benefits, please visit our Become a Member webpage.

This workshop will now take place as a Zoom class. Non members can apply for  a place from October 24th (to give priority to members).

Please email Nicola Dunn, our events coordinator, who will let you know if spaces are available. If so, Nicola will provide you with online banking or cheque details, and, once your payment is received, she will book your place on the workshop.
