Diane Illingworth-Cooke’s workshop on magnets
Magnets offer exciting new opportunities to book artists, binders and box makers. Displayed as part of the design or discreetly hidden under covering material, they can hold things closed, or hold them open, or even keep things in place. In this workshop we will be exploring the properties of different types and sizes of magnets and their use as closures, attachments and hinges. You will make a set of samples contained in a simple wrapper box that will inspire your imagination and creativity and enabling the inclusion of magnets to enhance your own work.
Maximum number 15, materials cost £15, some magnets for sale.

PVA (small pot will be plenty), brush or roller for glueing out, small brush or glue applicator, cutting mat, suitable craft knife or scalpel for cutting up to 2250 micron greyboard and cover paper, metal rule, bone folder, fine straight awl/dissecting needle.
