Anandwan book cloth. Part One.

The students continued the box making, learning that it is not the amount of glue that you use but how you use it.

I had decided that the best way forward was to have a number of different work shops on the go at the same time. One of these separate work shops was how to make book cloth from an old sari.
As the work shop was open to the elements on three sides the first order of the day was to clean down the work surface.

After much elbow grease the demonstration began.
First is to find a suitable cloth. We found some cotton, which as with any natural fabric is perfect. This was place face down on to a Formica surface ( near enough any non porous surface will bo the job, in Studio 5 I tend to use a huge double glazing panel )
