Spend an afternoon creating your perfect sketchbook: choose the paper, choose the covers, do it yourself -just as you want it!

For many urban sketchers or watercolour artists, the search for the perfect sketchbook is ongoing. Sometimes the size is great, but the paper you want is not available in sketchbook format. Now there is an end to that!

I am very pleased to launch the GardeniaFair workshop series with a collaboration with Taller Blas Encuadernación, from Buenos Aires Argentina.  Jimena Medina Aguilar, founder and leader of the Taller Blas, will conduct two workshops in Berlin in February. Jimena is a master bookbinder and can create small wonders with her hands. Now you can too -and take two beautiful sketchbooks home.

You will take home not only the two sketchbooks but also some basic tools and a tutorial so you can make more sketchbooks at home. And…we will treat you to a cup of your favourite hot beverage and delicious cake or waffles. This might be the best way of spending a cold Berlin winter afternoon.

You will be able to choose from two high-quality, artist grade papers: Arches (300gsm, 100% cotton, cold pressed) or Hahnemühle Bamboo (265gsm, bamboo and cotton, vegan paper).

You will be able to choose from several cover papers to finish your custom sketchbook: italian hand made papers with several prints.

You can register now at our workshops page. We look forward to creating  your perfect sketchbooks or art journals together.
