Throughout history the pocket notebook/sketchbook has played an integral role in the development of many important ideas. Famous thinkers and makers who were never without their pocket notebooks include Leonardo Da Vinci, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Darwin, Ernest Hemingway, Frida Kahlo, Mark Twain, Pablo Picasso, Marilyn Monroe & Isaac Newton.
I’m interested in the moment in which an idea is found and how it is initially articulated or recorded. For this free, drop-in workshop, as part of East St Arts Open Studios weekend, people are invited to measure and bind a notebook of their own to fit a specific pocket, using traditional bookbinding techniques, tools and materials.
