This is a fantastic course and a chance to learn traditional bookbinding/making. With Ann’s patience, help and encouragement, I was able to produce a beautiful hard cover journal. Everything from the course materials to the teaching is quality and worth every penny. It was a fun and relaxing day and I was so proud of what I was able to make thanks to Ann’s experience and teaching abilities. I would definitely recommend this course as one to try.

I’ve just completed this course with Ann. As with the lace making course, this was well paced, so I didn’t feel rushed and Ann was happy to go over steps several times when I didn’t catch on right away. There were lots of very handy hints and tips and I bought a tool kit and a paper kit from Ann with a set of instructions. I’m delighted with the book I made and today I am making another one at home. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and Ann is good company too.

I learned many new skills in a relaxing atmosphere. Ann really knows her stuff and passed her knowledge on without making students feel stupid when they make mistakes!

A very enjoyable 2 days that was well worth the cost.

When I attended this course, I didn’t think my first efforts at bookbinding would be much good, but I went home with a super, hard-bound notebook that looked so professional my family didn’t believe I’d made it until I showed them the pix I took! Plus I now have the skills to make more books. Top quality materials are provided and Ann seems to have a knack of explaining things so everyone can easily understand h process. Now I know what everyone is getting for Christmas! Thank you Ann, I have no hesitation in recommending you and your courses.

Digital may be king today, but there will always be a place in the world for real books with pages and covers.

There are few crafts more satisfying than making your own beautiful traditionally bound books.

This course will teach you the skills needed to create your own A5 hard-bound journal, which also makes a fabulous gift (if you can bear to part with it!!) These skills can then be used to make almost any size of book.

The fee for the workshop includes:

  • All materials needed to make your first book, with your choice of cover paper and book cloth
  • Use of all necessary tools
  • Refreshments

* You’ll have the chance to buy a complete tool kit and a materials pack after the class, to continue bookbinding at home if you wish.

All-inclusive ~ £110.00
