I can’t, I have binding
You won’t believe me! But I turned down a cheese and wine night and even a yoga class invitation for a book binding workshop that I signed up for. Yes Yes ! My friends thought I was crazy, but even if it were true, I wasn’t the only one! It’s because I’m eager to see all the experiences that I’m sharing with you in “I tried” show completed. Okay, enough talk, I’ll tell you now about my experience on Monday night in a binding workshop by “copte couture”. Or how I made my very first notebook !!!
After 15 years in finance, a world tour and four children, Aude Augais decided to embark on a new adventure by starting Les Artisans, a meeting with a professional while in creation, and it all happens in her apartment! That’s something that titillated my curiosity. We are not in a workshop, but rather in her home in the heart of the XVIth arrondissement. Upstairs, the children are still laughing as we sit down in the living room to introduce ourselves and have an aperitif.
Journalist, retired, publicist, expatriate, or in professional retraining. These are foremost the 8 paths of women who will meet tonight.
I enjoy these interactions that sometimes make me question, fascinate me or amuse me… Come on, it’s time to take action. (I specify that it is open to men!)
It is Marion from l’Atelier Dreieck who will introduce us to the “couture copte” this evening. This method consists of making your notebook without using any glue! So we’re going to use a thread and a needle. I love the idea! Here comes the paper folding. Then you have to pierce them rigorously to make them aligned.
The outcome? It’s beautiful, the thread is very strong and it looks like professional work.
I’m talking about the pleasure of doing something with my own hands and taking notes in a notebook that I made myself.
Good to know! You can come just once of course, but you can also sign up for a creative package for 7 sessions. You will find on the website some child/adult workshops (from 8 years old). Perfect to offer your children a common activity during the school holidays.
