About the Course

Take the next step into Book Binding; we will be making a 'sewn boards binding', associated with the advent and advancement of the codex format book in late Antiquity, using the Coptic chain stitch and an ingenious board attachment along with various modern materials and fabrics to make a tactile, flat-opening book structure.

If you are not at this level, then our 'Book Binding' holiday will be the perfect preparation:
• Prepare your own book using traditional techniques
• Share inspiration and exchange ideas
• Gain knowledge to continue book binding at home

The Peveril of the Peak occupies a wonderful position in the village of Thorpe, less than a mile from the famous stepping stones at the entrance to the Dove Dale gorge. Named after the novel by Sir Walter Scott, it offers excellent facilities and is surrounded by extensive grounds.

HF Holidays have been offering activity breaks since 1913, with stunning destinations across the UK, Europe and Worldwide. Our Art & Craft breaks will allow you to flex that creative muscle and get inspired. Suited to a range of abilities, we have a perfect creative break for you.
