Bookbinding using leather and marbled paper, Frome - Somerset. Private Tuition



Immerse yourself in 2 days of creative work and learn valuable book repair skills. Learn how to hand stitch your own personalised book. Make use of our fabulous range coloured and textured papers designed to give your book a very stylish and also a wonderful tactile appeal. The day is split into three skills; paper craft and sewing and then leatherwork. We use decorative tooling and we have a good range of antique Victorian decorative tools to give your book a professional finish. I enjoy teaching and helping people to create unusual projects. Previous students have made travel diaries, family history books, whisky tasting notebooks, cookery notebooks and photo albums. I have a teaching qualification and in the past I have taught at Art Colleges, Schools, Museums and Festivals. This course is designed to be both accessible for beginners and engaging for intermediate abilities. This is an opportunity to work alongside a professional bookbinder as I will teach and support you through your project but also share with you conservation work that I am currently busy with. I enjoy teaching and helping people to create unusual projects. I have been working as a professional restoration bookbinder for 12 years and I have a post graduate qualification in Museum studies.
