I loved this workshop! It was a great way to spend the day. The surroundings were lovely and the Micklems Farm team were so friendly and welcoming. Our tutor was extremely good and very thorough in showing us some of the more complicated steps doing coptic stitch binding. I feel that I've learnt so much more about bookbinding. It's greatly added to my knowledge.

Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:

Thank you for your review - hope to see you here again.
