BOOKBINDING COURSES 2016 - 17

Learn to make traditional and contemporary bindings at my studio here in Aylsham, Norfolk.
No experience is necessary and each of the binding can be made without the need for any special equipment. They can be used for the rebinding of existing books as well as making new books, and all lend themselves well to the more creative use of materials.
You will go home with a completed book of blank pages.

The courses all stand alone and run from 10 until 4pm, with a maximum number of six people. The cost of £45 includes all materials and basic course notes to take home.
A kit to repeat the project at home can be provided for a small extra charge.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to discuss any details.
