Guy Begbie will be running a drop-in book making and binding adult workshop from 11am to 3pm, suitable for beginners. Materials will be provided.


Also at 2pm join Julian Warren, archivist at Arnolfini and Paul Clarke, member of the Performance Re-enactment Society for a free talk about The Cover of a Book is the Beginning of a Journey, an exhibition of artists’ books on floor 2.


Artists-in-residence a.a.s. will be responding The Cover of a Book is the Beginning of a Journey by constructing new ‘performance scores’ from the exhibition material which they will perform with the help of visitors on the day.
