The First Bookbinding Retreat

 I've always ran my workshops at home, and this year I decided to expand the horizon. On the 26-27 September, 9 people (10 including the host of Kunyit 7 Lodge) signed up for a bookbinding retreat. We held it at a bed and breakfast called Kunyit 7 Lodge located at the Water Village, Kampong Ayer, Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. Its near enough to 'home' yet different enough for a holiday feel. With the cooperation of the owner of the B&B, we created a package, of an over night stay combined with a workshop on bookbinding.

The retreat started off with a group heading down to the lodge, and get settled in before the lodge host took the participants around the water village for a walking tour. The workshop was held after dinner.

The next morning was for the participants to test their muscle memory and made their second book with us watching over to help with steps they've forgotten.

The location, sights, sounds, scenery made the bookbinding workshop very memorable and a great experience for everyone.
