Beginning Bookbinding with edelHANDMADEBOOKS

Wednesday mornings:  January 30 – February 27

10.00am – 1.00pm - 6 Places Only

£260 inc all materials

This 5-week series is designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to the basic skills of bookbinding. We complete four different structures - case bound, quarter bound, concertina and stab stitch - as well as a lined slipcase in which to store your 'prototype' collection. The styles are carefully chosen so that they each represent a finished project or can be ‘mixed and matched’ to provide a myriad of creative results ensuring you are never again short of a notebook or gift! 

You finish with your own beautiful collection to use or to refer to as you practice your new skills. 

All equipment and materials will be provided along with step-by-step demonstration and practice.  As far as possible, we use easily available tools and materials so that you can put your learning to immediate use, but pre-prepared kits will be available should you wish to avail of them. (We also provide materials for non-obligatory homework!)
