Bookbinding Workshop

Sorry, I forgot to include this in the blog earlier.

In November 2015, Julie Macbean gave us a really interesting workshop introducing us to bookbinding using Japanese Stab binding.

The picture shows an example, featuring the interesting pattern of stitching.

We're hoping to put on further workshops by Julie on bookbinding and printing later in 2016.

aim4art Display at MIMA

The invitation to display work at MIMA as part of their ground-breaking 'Localism' exhibition has been one of our greatest highlights to date. It feels really good to be part of this new departure for MIMA, whose new management deserve every credit for promoting local artists past and present.

Here are some more images from the exhibition:
