Studio Tour

Friday 21st May, 2.30 – 3.30pm, Rowledge’s Studio, London W9. In association with the Joanna Bird Foundation.

Tracey Rowledge gave an illuminating tour of her studio and discussed her recent bookbinding work and past projects. We would like to thank Tracey for giving a wonderful insight into her workspace and artistic process.

Tracey is an artist and bookbinder, living and working in London. Rowledge’s practice draws from both her fine art and bookbinding training, utilising traditional tools and materials. Through mark-making, Rowledge explores the materiality of objects and their function.

Tracey is a partner in Benchmark Bindery, established in 2009 with Kathy Abbott, to produce high quality and intelligent bookbinding work. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is held in numerous public and private collections, including the V&A and The British Library.
