Printing & Bind your own book.




Do you have a favourite piece of writing? 
Have you written a poem? 
Would you like to make a book for yourself, or to give as a gift to a friend or partner?


Print and Bind your own book is a practical workshop in which you will learn how to print and bind a book, using basic bookbinding and printing techniques.

Day 1 entails a range of relief and mono-print printmaking.

Day 2 will be spent folding, gluing and stitching your prints into books, so that by the end of the day you will be ready to take them home with you.

This is a 2 day workshop. Each day runs from 10am until 4pm
The fee is £120 for two days, and I ask for a £50 deposit when you book your place.

I accept a maximum of four people per workshop, which enables me to ensure that each student receives as much assistance as they require.

Included on the day:
All materials
Use of tools
Lunch, tea and coffee are also provided.


An Introduction to Book Binding



An introduction to bookbinding will give the complete beginner the skills to produce various notebooks with a variety of bindings. This is a practical workshop where you will learn how to make several books, using simple stitch techniques.

In one day you will cover Japanese Stab Binding and pamphlet stitch. These adaptable bindings can be used to make your own journals, sketchbooks and notebooks.

Making your own books as gifts for family and friends is very satisfying, and for those with no previous experience, these workshops are a great place to start.

The workshop runs from 9.50am until 4.30pm and the fee is £75 for the day. I ask for a £20 deposit when you book your place.

I accept a maximum of four people per workshop. This is to ensure that I can give you all the attention you will need.

Spend a day working in an atmosphere of encouragement and enthusiasm, and leave with a selection of bound books of your own.

Included on the day:
All materials and use of tools
Lunch, tea and coffee are also provided.
