Miniature Books

Croxtoth Park - August Bank Holiday

Here are a couple of photos from yesterday - not the woollen mittens!  As you can imagine, it was rather cold and very wet-not ideal for paper products,  but we managed and didn’t ruin anything. Sadly,  the weather put off visitors, although we did manage to sell 3 books and some bookmarks. It would have been a super day in better weather.
Choirs, live music, lots of plant and bulb stalls and lovely people.........Marilyn

Our September session will be considering the appeal of miniature books, and we will also be making one in a style which can be ‘bigged up’ to make a full size book if you wish. If anyone has very small or miniature books they would be willing to bring along and share with us, that would be great.
So, for the making part of our meeting you will need the following: 

Cutting mat, safety ruler, and knife. Please note that your instructions will be in inches so a ruler to mark inches is important, but it will not be needed for the actual cutting.  

2 pieces of patterned paper, ideally double sided and not too thick, which measure  eleven and three quarter inches by four inches. There will be plenty of measuring to do so bring your glasses if you need them!

We will be finalising details for our offsite visit to Harrocks Wood on the Wirral in October.

We’re back to normal this month, meeting in meeting room 2,  4th floor of the central library at 10.30 a.m.
