Introduction to Publishing Practices

31 March, 2020 1:14 am - 1:20 am

Suitable for complete beginners.

Join us for practical, hands-on workshops led by experts at the London Centre for Book Arts.

Learn how to produce your own DIY publications from start to finish.

Participants will be guided through setting up digital layouts to print files for both perfect-bound books and pamphlets, and we will discuss what to consider when selecting materials for each project.

Workshop participants will be introduced to the following machines:

Risograph duplicator
Perfect binder
Coil and wire binders
Electric stapler.

There will be time set aside to discuss individual projects with the group.

Those who have completed the workshop will have the opportunity to become Studio Members or Studio Pass holders to work independently, with occasional guidance, on their own projects at the LCBA studio.

All materials and tools provided.
