Melanie Hobbs reviewed: Bookbinding using leather and marbled paper, Frome - Somerset. Private Tuition

"Had a lovely day and learned a lot. Stephen's knowledge of bookbinding techniques and antiquarian books is amazing. Worked on rescuing my Mum's old cookery book and will be going back to finish it and to start a new project. Loved seeing the work that Stephen was doing on restoring old books. All in all, a really good day, would definitely recommend it."

"This was a fantastic course. Stephen was extraordinarily generous with both his time and materials. Before I went, he called and talked through exactly what I wanted to accomplish and tailored the course accordingly. Stephen is a wonderful teacher and managed to cover an extensive subject in a day without feeling rushed. I was learning by doing, which suited me very well. I'll be returning!"

"This is an excellent way to restore a favourite book as Stephen explains the process and works alongside you. It was really interesting learning about and trying out the techniques. Stephen was a very interested, friendly and patient tutor. I had looked throughout the UK for a course on one to one tuition and can highly recommend this one. I had never been to Frome before and at lunchtime having a walk into town beside the river was a lovely break. Overall, I really liked the bespoke flexibility which is excellent value for the money, having a professional bookbinder tutoring and working alongside you makes the day a special experience and you end up with your book bought back to life - very happy"

"Excellent teaching - Stephen told/showed me each stage and then let me complete the task. Renewed 2 dear old cookery books so they are now good for another 40 years. (Much coffee and chocolate, nice little walk to town centre at lunchtime.)"
