Cartonera Workshop, Cambridge University Library
In August 2019, together with Lucy Bell and colleagues at the library, Patrick led a cardboard-booking workshop for families in Cambridge, teaching book-making techniques and explaining the histories and geographies of thes publishing movement. Cambridge University Library now holds a special collection of cartonera books that were collected by the Cartonera Publishing project.
In June 2018, Patrick and Lucy Bell delivered a series of cartonera workshops at the Hay book festival, in collaboration with a local artist and Emma Balch of The Story of Books. The events led to the establishment of a teenage cartonera publisher in Hay-on-Wye and their delivery of cartonera workshops all through the summer!
