We’re really looking forward to week six of our project workshops at Sissinghurst Castle Garden. This week, we will be learning the basics of marbling and binding, to give our poem booklet the traditional treatment, and to make sure it looks as close to the original as possible.
To guide us, Anna Fewster will be leading both days of workshops. On Tuesday we will be marbling, and on Wednesday, hand-binding some notebooks.
We’ll then be able to transfer these skills over to the actual poem booklet, with the volunteers hand-binding the edition in the traditional manner.
The project carries on apace, with pages 1-4 of the poem all but complete. This week, as well as marbling and binding, we hope to finish printing page 5 of the poem, and begin to run proofs of the poem title pages and end pages.
