About the Course

Learn to make a hand bound leather journal.

This hands-on workshop will teach you to make a hand bound leather journal from scratch. Starting with a large sheet of paper you'll be guided through the process of turning it into the individual pages of the journal, binding them together and adding a leather cover as well as a page marker.

You will be given the opportunity to dye the veg tan leather to form the cover as well as adding decoration using embossing / stamping it if you wish, creating a truly unique item to take home at the end of the day

Closed toe footwear should be worn. If you wish to protect your clothing (from dye etc.) please bring a suitable apron.

Thought the day was really organised, very interesting and I enjoyed it very much.

Really enjoyed the day. Wendy and Clive were very welcoming and provided great tuition. The course was at the right pace and good for somebody who has relatively few leather-craft skills, but the results were very good, a beautiful leather bound, hand crafted journal. It would be really useful to have a photo-copy step by step guide to take away with you. That would be the icing on the cake! By the way, gorgeous surroundings and views from the kitchen, a very enjoyable day. Worth the journey from West Yorkshire. All the best, Helen.

The course was fantastic. The tutors were friendly, helpful, supportive and skilled. They provided everything required and maintained a sense of humour throughout the day, with bucket loads of support and advice

Well worth the money.
