Fancy having some neon to light up your life? Stuck for a pressie idea for the friend who has everything? Or just fancy getting creative for a few hours and doing something a little bit different? Here at Make Me Neon we have a real thing about neon and we believe that everyone should have some neon lighting up their life. During this three hour class you will be taken through each stage of the creative process and will be provided with everything you need to create your masterpiece including a glass of fizz to get the creative juices flowing (obvs!). We use 40 x 50 cm artist's canvases and battery powered LED neon wire in either pink, green or light blue so it's a far less dangerous affair than working with proper neon and it also means you can display your handiwork without any unsightly wires on display. You don't need to be very creative or artistic you just have to want to create something fabulous in neon and we can help with the rest.

Learn how to make your very own hand-made notebook using the traditional Concertina bookbind.

This morning workshop -second in the LCBAs series- will look into the Concertina method. This method was used for many early Greek texts, it is a folded structure made by simply folding a sheet of paper back and forth in page-width increments. Producing the accordion-fashion book involves folding and manipulating paper using specialist tools to create traditional book structures by hand. The final product is yours to take home with you and can be used for anything from serious sketches to absent minded doodles. Bookbinding is hungry work, so there i™s also the option of lunch in the Carousel restaurant after you a€™re done.
