It’s all about Books, Baby! – Bookbinding-Workshop with Anna Frey

Wednesday 08.09.2021 13:00 – 16:00

Festival Headquarters (GREEN DOOR artists space & gallery, Kempelengasse 8, 1100 Wien)


Bookbinding made easy! In this 3-hour workshop Anna Frey will show you how to bind your own book with thread stitching from the finest papers. Special focus will be put on the format photo (book) and the advantages and disadvantages of the different bindings – fitting to the OFF GRID Festival. In the workshop you will learn the most important tools, terms and techniques and then bind your own personal notebook with open spine.

With “Workshops von Frey”, graphic designer Anna Frey offers workshops and lovingly designed step-by-step instructions on all aspects of bookbinding. The trained graphic designer rethinks classic bindings – and bridges the gap between tradition and modernity with a combination of high-quality materials and characteristic, minimalist design. The ultimate goal: to inspire paper lovers with an interest in craftsmanship and a desire to slow down for a beautiful, dying craft. In June 2021, the second edition of her book “Bücher binden. Grundlagen und Techniken Schritt für Schritt” was self-published.
