Dadaist (architectural) poetry and bookbinding workshop

11th October 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Suitable for beginners in both areas: poetry and bookbinding. 

Make a simple book and then create Dadaist poetry with pre-cut words (provided) to put in your book.

First we will make small, (3inch by 4inch approx) simple bound books. Then in the spirit of Dada, using pre-cut words we will create random poetry (though you are free to make adjustments if you want). The poems can then be stuck in the book you have made (again: optional). You are invited to read your poems, but there is no pressure to do so.

All materials provided.

These include: a choice of book covers made from card, Cambridge Imprint papers, handmade paper, ephemera (as in the pic above). Waxed linen or cotton thread for binding, plus a variety of other threads/string for binding. Pages for the books. Most importantly: pre-cut words so the poems are effortless 🙂 These include architectural words and words from a page of the House of Annetta website. Glue.
