The Art of Book binding

Wed 25 May 10am - 3pm

£56/£53(c) • Friends £54/£51(c)

Professional bookbinder and member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen, Pamela Richmond is here to offer an introduction to the fascinating art of bookbinding.  During today’s workshop you will make a single and multiple section notebook with soft covers where you will then introduce decorative sewing techniques.

If you get through that in no time you may also have the chance to make a notepad with a loose hard cover.  

Pamela will share her wealth of knowledge of this centuries old craft and inspire you to continue making your own bespoke stationary from home with a few simple tools and techniques.

Please do bring along any pieces of decorative paper that you would like to use for the book cover should you wish.
