Read the course outline.

Take inspiration from the world's greatest collection of books at our creative masterclass. Be introduced to a range of book structures and learn the intricate art of folding, stitching and hand-binding to produce a number of your own books. Learn the importance of paper grain in bookbinding, and experiment with folding and stitching techniques to create various book forms, including pamphlets and fanfolds. Work towards creating a number of personalised case bindings – books with covers – incorporating various book art techniques.

Our course is designed to help you develop skills in handling and choosing appropriate tools and materials for creating hand bindings, with and without specialist equipment. Explore your own ideas of design and production, and gain the knowledge to develop your interests and skills at home.
