Explore the basics of bookbinding on this 3 week evening course. Learn how to use the tools, materials and techniques to get you started in bookbinding. You’ll make a variety of different small books from scratch including pamphlet stitch, Japanese stab binding, a hardcover book and concertina books. The course will be taught in a step by step way and you’ll learn some simple glueing and stitching methods you can continue with at home.

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants and a larger space to allow plenty of room for social distancing. In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us.

Course Booking Terms and Conditions

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

We can offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend due to Covid-19.
