Making a paper collage book cover is a fun mixed-media craft workshop for children. We’ll be using a variety of old papers (newspapers, used envelopes, magazines, maps etc) to create a unique book cover. We’ll be using decorative machine stitching on the book cover.

  • Sewing machines, equipment and fabrics provided
  • Bring a book to make a cover for. This can be a school jotter, a story book, a diary or we can make the cover for a phone, i-pad or tablet!
  • We’ll be using paint so wear old clothes or bring an apron.
  • I am insured and hold a PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certificate
