Yesterday was my last lesson at Boekbinderij Papyrus. In ten nights, I not only learned a lot about bookbinding, but I was also very inspired by the lovely environment, the great materials I had at at my disposal, and the other students and their projects. These students have been coming there for years, so a lot of what they made was out of my league, but seeing the techniques they used, the beautiful paper, their ideas, was just a great source of inspiration for a beginner like me.
Now I can look back at the things I made (of which you see a selection below) and use them as inspiration for myself, to keep practising and get better at bookbinding. And maybe in half a year or a year’s time, I might just return to the lovely teacher Wilma to learn more!
By the way, if a series of lessons is too much for you: Wilma also organises lovely one-day workshops!
