Make your own sketchbook at Atwell Gallery

BOOKINGS - contact Atwell Arts Centre 08 9330 2800

Make your own unique hard backed A4 sketchbook using traditional coptic stitch binding which allows the book to open flat. This is perfect for a sketchbook as it allows you to work easily on each page.

Choose a selection of quality artist papers (watercolour, pastel, coloured etc) for your pages and learn how to assemble and stitch your book together. We will be using traditional hard wearing book cloth for the covers and making our own decorative end papers using a Japanese paste method. Choose your own colour scheme and personalize your cover through hand embellishing in your chosen style.

You will go home with a very robust and unique sketchbook ready for you to fill with your own artwork or to give to someone as a special gift.
