Make your own hardback notebook - evening Zoom Workshop

Finished notebooks

About the Course

Make your own hand bound hardback notebook at our ZOOM workshop.

Join us for a special online workshop where you will learn a traditional book binding technique from the comfort of your own home – perfect to give as Christmas gifts 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 the same traditional bookbinding technique we use in our printed volumes. 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. This workshop is being led by Lorna, editor and book binder at Crumps Barn Studio. She has been leading book binding workshops for many years. 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.

We also offer a Saturday morning workshop - see our other listings
