Book binding - Zoom Saturday Morning Workshop



Make your own hand bound hardback notebook at our online book binding workshop. Join us for a special Saturday morning online workshop where you will learn how to make your own hand bound hardback notebook from the comfort of your own home – perfect to give as a gift or for your own enjoyment. The workshop fee includes a book binding kit delivered to your door - it contains everything you will need on the day, except for a pair of scissors! In this warm and relaxed workshop, you will be taken step by step through the stages of making your own hardback notebook using a traditional bookbinding technique. Book early so that we can post your kit to you. We describe this workshop as suitable for comfortable crafters – there is a little sewing and some gluing. You will be making an A6 sized hard back notebook filled with artist quality cartridge paper. The technique we use is the same traditional method we use at Crumps Barn Studio when we bind hand bound volumes of our printed books. First and foremost we are a publisher of memoir and poetry working from our studio in the Cotswolds - we love the tactile nature of beautifully made books. More dates being added all the time. This course is being taught online using ZOOM. Please get in touch
