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.

  • Who is the course for?

    This course is for absolute beginners or ideal for someone looking to brush-up on their existing bookbinding skills. Those who have a creative practice may wish to learn some simple techniques to add a new process to their skills.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    All tools and materials are provided, along with a set of technical notes. If you have any papers of your own you wish to use then feel free to bring them along to use on the day.

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

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.

Bookings cannot be transferred between courses however bookings can be transferred to another person in the event that you are unable to attend on the day.

In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
