Event description
Learn the fundamentals of the rich craft of bookbinding in this hands-on workshop, led by a professional bookbinder.

About this Event

Join us in our professional bindery, where we'll show you some tips and tricks of the trade in this thorough introduction to bookbinding. We'll make a hard cover single section pamphlet, a concertina book and a stab binding - versatile structures that are useful for book artists, writers, printmakers and book lovers.

You'll be introduced to the fundamentals of handling materials like paper, bookcloth and adhesives, and will use traditional tools and equipment to make your books. We'll also cover the principles of grain direction, and give you some tips on how to fold, measure and cut materials accurately.

At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with three handmade books, the skills to make more at home and your very own bone folder - the most important tool for a binder.
