book arts


These tutorials came into being during the time spent teaching students, and were an attempt to answer questions posed by them.

I have made every attempt to make these tutorials as complete and fail proof as possible, every step of each element is illustrated with photographs and diagrams accompanied by a detailed textual description. As a result they can be quite lengthy, the tutorial on making silver book clasps runs to over 80 pages, but it is to be hoped that after completion you will not have to rely so heavily on the instruction next time.

I give details of contacts where you can readily obtain any materials or equipment needed. Some of the tutorials come complete with the materials you will need, such as the Book clasp instruction.

At present their are three tutorials which i have completed, their are three others which I am in the process of writing.
