We are delighted to welcome U.S based book artist Deb Eck to Wur Bradford to run a very special bookbinding workshop with us.

Deb is an internationally exhibited book and installation artist who works primarily with paper, text and thread. She is most well known in the book arts community for her translations of historic embroidery designs into functional binding designs. Originally from Essex in the UK, she has lived and worked in upstate New York for over 20 years. Eck received a BFA in painting from the University at Buffalo and an MA in Visual Culture from the University of Northumbria in Newcastle (UK). She teaches as an adjunct at Jamestown Community College and Fredonia State University, and for many other arts and cultural organizations.
She has been the recipient of many grants and awards; most recently she was named the Distinguished Artist for 2017 by Cattaraugus County Arts Council.

About the workshop

This workshop will cover a series of one, two and three signature bindings, perfect for zine makers, poets and others wanting to make/publish small books. Each technique builds on the one before, to make increasingly complex bindings that can be used on paper or leather covers. The workshop is suitable for those with no previous book binding experience, but experienced binders may find some new ways to approach the simple pamphlet.

Materials are provided, though please feel free to bring anything you would like to use.
The workshop will run from 1pm till 3pm, but please feel free to come at our usual opening time of 12pm, for conversation and a cuppa beforehand. You can find us in Kirkgate Market (above the shopping Centre) opposite Home From Home Cafe.

The workshop is free but we have limited places. PleaseĀ email us wurbradford@gmail.com to book your place.
