Hello…. I am taking part in the festival of crafts at Farnham Malitngs, so come and find me there this weekend if you fancy. I will also be showing people how to stab bind notebooks in the weekend workshops. Places are limited so book now if you are interested… http://craft.farnhammaltings.com/portfolio/book-binding/
My first experiment with Instagram. Have a peep if you want, I just started with a few pics of my workshop….the tidy bits anyway. http://www.instagram.com/catherinemcginniss.com
Hi All, I have been really busy since Pick Me Up, so, although a little late here in posting these, some of my pics. . . . .
So much fun stab binding my notebooks at this table – and only one person got stabbed but we both had plasters!!!
Busy busy. At Pick Me Up people could choose one of my screenprinted notebook designs, customise it with coloured thread and choose and print a name plate (name plate printed with SORT).
I met some really great people whilst binding notebooks and shared with them my binding tricks and tips. I think it seemed daunting to some at first but if a five year old called “Harri with an i” can do a great job….well I need say no more. So a big thank you to those brave enough to give it a go and thanks for the amazing feedback. If you missed out on a notebook you can buy one from my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/CatherineMcginniss
Alice Devine from The Illustrated Game, cutting stuff….Oh, and I like the tiny subbuteo flag on top if the hut. Really great people to have as neighbours at PMU.
This is Letterproeftuin. Great design on a small scale.
Brighton based shop and design studio Unlimited and Sarah Glover an illustrator from Codswallop in Leicester. Plus loads more who I have not mentioned such as Paul Blows, Andy Martin and the Staff at Somerset House and awsomme things like Melvin Galapon’s Grid Forms.
The sun came out. Yay. So I took some pictures on the beach of 5 notebooks that I have been making.
This cloudy notebook along with others will be with me at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, London 24/04/14 – 05/05/14. I screen printed the covers by hand and stitched the book together with some colourful British linen thread.
Another stab bound notebook for your words and pictures. These notebooks are made with recycled card and the paper is plain inside.
I couldn’t help listening to Malvina Reynolds’ song Little Boxes whilst drawing these houses. I got very inky fingers with this one…..tee hee
