About the Course
Create a beautiful A5 (portrait format) book with hardback covers and a decorative stitched spine. Bind your book with a choice of papers and stitch the open spine with a combination of coloured tapes and threads. We’ll be using good quality, acid free cartridge and in just one day Carole will teach you all the necessary techniques to create a beautiful volume of your own design. This workshop is recommended for bookbinders with a little experience. Read reviews from our workshops on our website via the link button above.

What's included in the price?
All materials required to make your open spine book are included in the course fee. One day of professional bookmaking tuition. A spacious work area is allocated to each student along with their own set of tools to use while they’re here. A plentiful supply of tea, coffee and afternoon cake is provided.
Had a great day making my Open Spine bound book at Carole King’s workshop on Wednesday. Lots of different papers to choose from for the cover so this time I picked a very girly, red-hearts on blue background – definitely not my usual choice! Bit fiddly in places, but we all finished on time and everyone’s was very different. I love my book so will use it for all the small sketches and paintings I have done over the years rather than just look at a beautiful – but empty – book!
