Gwen Covey-Crump reviewed: Bookbinding using leather and marbled paper, Frome - Somerset. Private Tuition

"I benefited from a fantastic 2 days of one-on-one tuition to restore a very large antique atlas. Stephen patiently coached me through a whole range of techniques and we more-or-less rebuilt the vast tome. I've come away with 'homework' and the skills to repair some more books. Highly recommended."

Alun Maddocks reviewed: Antiquarian book repair day

"A really hands on experience. Stephen was very knowledgeable and supportive. He clearly explained every stage in detail and regularly reinforced different stages. He kept examples simple and easy to follow, while being encouraging and helpful in explaining different techniques. A really good experience, very enjoyable and therapeutic. But beware this can be addictive and need to curb expectations until skill is embedded in memory ! A"

"Had a great day restoring my grandmother's story book from 1891. Stephen is an excellent teacher and good company. His workshop is a treasure trove of interesting books too. Definitely recommend this course "

"An excellent day. Stephen gave me a comprehensive introduction in how to repair old books and gave me practical experience and confidence. He was very generous with his time, and his enthusiasm for book repair is contagious. I hope to visit him again soon. "
