About Letters to the Future: a writing and bookbinding workshop

Edinburgh-based bookbinder Cass Barron and writer Julie Galante are teaming up to deliver a special letter-themed workshop for Book Week Scotland 2020. Inspired by this year’s festival theme, this workshop invites you to create a book of memories and letters to the future, resulting in a unique personal project or gift for a loved one.

Via a live Zoom event and a series of pre-recorded online tutorials, Cass and Julie will lead you through the making process and provide you with writing guidance and exercises that explore themes of self-reflection, hopes, and ambitions for the future, resulting in a hand-bound collection of uplifting, inspiring and poignant letters.

A kit containing all the tools and materials you will need is included in the workshop – this consists of bookbinding tools, a range of recycled, vintage and decorative papers, stamps, and a few surprises.

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as those with writing and/or bookbinding experience. You don’t have to consider yourself a maker or a writer to take part – Julie and Cass will guide you through and will be available to answer questions along the way.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Letters to the Future: a writing and bookbinding workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
