This crafty idea is bound to impress.

PAPER making and book binding might seem like specialised work, but two craft makers are teaching people how to do it.

Jane Bolton and her sister-in-law Katherine Bolton are running monthly craft sessions at Upper Edge Baptist Church in Rastrick.

The duo will be teaching specialised techniques but making them seem easy, with everything from making handmade paper, creating your own books and highly-specialised book binding.

Jane, of Fenay Bridge, and Katherine, of Bradley, have so far this year taught people how to make a book collection.

And on Saturday participants had some messy fun as they made their own handmade paper.

But the coming month's sessions will teach people how to sew or bind a book, known as coptic binding.

Jane said: "Since January we've had people making four books in a box, which would make a good gift for someos ne.

"People have also made lavender paper and on May 12 we'll be holding a coptic binding class, which is learning to sew together a hardback book.

"It's all with plain paper, although people could bind a book with writing.

"Katherine is the expert, she's taught me and it's become a shared hobby we thought we'd pass on.

"People have found it good fun, they've learnt new things, made new friends and it's a really good atmosphere."

The church minister and his wife, Lee and Marina Reddyhoff, have already signed up and Lee made homemade soup for participants on Saturday.

The book-binding and craft workshops take place on the second Saturday of every month at the Dewsbury Road church between Rastrick and Elland.

Classes run from 10am until 4pm and session prices vary depending on materials needed to contact Jane on 07526 713 724 for more details.
