‘Gotta go- I’m working on a book.’
‘I didn’t know you are a writer.’
I’m not. I’m a book binder’…..

If you would like to create a unique gift for someone or own something special that you have made yourself, then bookbinding is a pleasurable pastime and easy to replicate at home. We have an evening taster course or a weekend day workshop. All of our bookbinding workshops are led by Joe Dixon. Joe is a professional binder and restorer with a busy workshop in London. His teaching style promotes confidence and all of the courses are suitable for absolute beginners.

One Day Travel Journal Workshop

In this one day course students will learn how to bind their own travel journal complete with pencil holder. Students will fold, sew, trim and case in an A5 notebook which is a perfect journal for your travels.

All tools and materials are included. Joe will be able to show you everything you will need to get going on this fascinating pastime. Bespoke books make awesome presents and writing in a book you have ‘made’ is a very special experience.

We supply a varied selection of papers and cloth to create your own design. This workshop is also suitable for beginners and takes place over one day 10am – 5pm.
