Little Syam Book Binding Workshop 8 >>> 7&8 July 2011

I had so much fun, 5 students came for my Little Syam Book Binding Workshop 8. Most of them are not a full time crafter, but the passion to learn the new skill what brought them to the workshop. Sofina and Safiyya are the 2 sisters both 9 and 11 years old that came back from Oman for summer holiday. I hope they could memorise the binding technique I taught them. The rest pick up very well and have done a good and very neat job for the first book they made. Well done:)

Time seems flies really fast. My hope are they will keep practising the skill. Caiyoooook:) //syam
