Service Description

Rain, rain, go away… what do you do indoors on rainy days when you can’t go out to play? In the era before iPads, we played board games, or table games as they are sometimes known. We’ll delve into the 3 types of games as described in the Libro de los Juegos, the old Spanish translation of the Arabic treatise describing various tabletop games, and explore the links between the historic games and the ones we played ourselves as children. In later classes we will do a deep dive into each game; this book is a primer for each game type. Paint the original Game of Thrones, the original table game and the Game of Life itself in a book. In green leather, like a classic games compendium. Since these are book classes, we will also be developing our bookmaking skills and learning new book cover techniques with the leather gradually. This is also a slightly bigger book than previous classes and we will be getting bigger with time too. Class includes a bespoke handmade leather envelope-flap cover to paint and free postage to anywhere in the world. Sent separately depending on production schedules. Make your own library of handmade Islamic books!
