This Hedebo Tunnel Book workshop takes us into the Danish craft of Hedebo - a white work embroidery technique originating from the Heden folk communities. Originally used in linen and heavy cotton, Paper Artist Yvette Ja has adapted the technique into paper to create a multi layered stitched tunnel book you can make from the comfort of your own home.
Who is it for?
No experience is necessary, step by step video instructions take you through the process. Our kits can also provide you with everything you need to create this piece of art.
The course is delivered across 3 short videos to watch at your own pace with a materials list and links to find out more information in embroidery and bookbinding.
You will have access to my private Book Arts Facebook group for anyone who has taken one of my courses. Here you can share your books, ask questions for anyone or myself to answer.
Kits are optional on this course as some of you might already have some of the tools. It includes everything you need to make the project.

Yvette Ja has been running bookbinding, origami and sculpture workshops for 12+ years and brings her Mixed Korean/UK heritage to her work, making it the best of both worlds! I learned how to bind books at a Victorian bindery at The Literary and Philosophical Society and have done extensive research in Artist's Books in my own practise. In 2011 I set up Book Apothecary: The Travelling Museum of Artist's Books which explored traditional and digital books through touring exhibitions. We worked with 48 artists and more than 2000 readers bringing bookbinding, sculpture, printmaking and textile books to new audiences. This project was funded by The Cultural Olympiad, National Lottery, Arts Council England and local councils.
I look forward to welcoming you onto this workshop.
Please note that for all online workshops, tickets are non refundable.
