What we'll do
This structure is a Bindfulness favourite. It lays flat, opens beautifully, and allows for endless design variation.

It is an elegant structure that has an additional section of card or heavier paper sewn onto the text block that is incorporated into the cover of the book.

About your Mentor
About your Mentor
Bindfulness was established 2018, and brought my work making handbound books and leading bookbinding workshops together. I have been an artist for my entire adult life, working in a wide range of materials, including mixed media, installation work, photography, videography. I completed my MA in Fine Art in 2009 followed by a Post Graduate teaching qualification in 2012. This structured learning greatly enhanced my workshop delivery skills, which has been my preferred way of teaching ever since. I have worked with Primary and Secondary Schools in Kent and Essex as an artist since 2009, devising creative activities that were responsive to both curriculum aims and participants ideas. Books have always featured in my work - passing on my fascination with the book is always a pleasure.
