Fodder School 3 is a year-long online mixed media art course with a different artist teaching each month, which you can join anytime. For the first half of each month, you learn mixed media techniques to make different types of fodder, which you then use in the second half of the month to create an exciting project so by the end of the year, you have 12 beautiful projects and a huge toolkit of mixed media techniques! Follow along with me on my Fodder School Journey!
This month has been a big learning curve in book binding!
For the first half of the month we created our coptic bound handmade books. I was very apprehensive about this as I’ve never done any complicated book binding. However, Di’s calm and clear instructions made it really easy to follow and I ended up absolutely loving the technique and the finished book! A great skill to have in the toolkit! Di also gave lots of methods for fabric printing the covers.
The second half of the month was all about filling our handmade books with watercolour doodles. I’d forgotten the simple pleasure of art journalling and it provided a few hours of blissful peace and flow state! Again, Di gave lots of new exciting methods to try with watercolours.
I still can’t quite believe how fun the book binding method was – super satisfying when you end up with a lovely bound book at the end! Thanks Di for being a super clear and inspiring teacher!
