Beginner Booking Binding Course

Learn how to bind your own book at this craft course in London!



3 x 2 hours Class size 2 to 8     label £150

Looking for a new DIY craft to get stuck into? Discover a new hobby with this wonderful bookbinding course in London!

Join talented Mark Cockram, a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders, who spends his days restoring ancient classics or binding Man Booker winners as he guides you through the fun and relaxing process of this special craft.

During three peaceful Tuesday evenings this Summer, you will learn how to make your own beautiful book, from scratch.

You will discover how to fold your own paper, hand sew the pages and create the cloth spine. You will also get hands-on with traditional book binding equipment such as a finishing press and Grecquage (a fascinating Ancient Greek method of positioning). You'll even learn how to use flottage — ink in large trays of water — to decorate your book’s front cover!

Don't worry if you're a complete bookbinding newbie, this friendly course will guide you through the processes step-by-step and your encouraging teacher will be on hand for help and support along the way.

By the end of your three bookbinding classes, you'll have a finished book to call your own as well as a whole host of skills and understanding of this wonderful craft.

This course is a perfect gift experience for literary lovers or crafty makers, as well as simply being a fun and exciting way to discover something new.
