16 September 2021 2:00 pm
Make your own Commonplace Book - or journal - in a bookbinding workshop with the very talented Ursula Jeakins. All sorts of famous people have kept commonplace books including John Milton, Napoleon, Lewis Carroll and Virginia Woolf, and they present an interesting record of our social and cultural history through poems, passages of text, recipes, reading lists, drawings, sayings, family turns of phrase, calligraphy, aspirations - all making up a miscellaneous collection that creates a trace of what catches the author’s interest or imagination over a number of years. Ursula will ease you through the process of creating your own beautful book to fill and treasure for years to come. Max number 10.
