About the course:

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th July           11.00am – 5.00pm


Over one weekend you will learn how to make two different types of hardback book from scratch. You will begin by learning how to sew single pages onto tapes to make a book with an intricate, visible spine and hard front and back covers. Then you will go on to make a traditional hard-back cloth bound book complete with endpapers, headbands and a bookmark ribbon.


The course is ideal for those who already have some experience of making books but is also suitable for anyone who has no previous book binding experience. After completion of the course you will never want to buy your own note- or sketchbook ever again.

Cost: £140.00 / £120.00 members

Maximum of 8.00 people
