Book Binding Workshop

An introductory workshop in bookbinding, where you will learn how to make hand bound books by assembling the paper signatures, end papers and cover.

What is Bookbinding?

Bookbinding is the process of assembling a book from an ordered stack of paper sheets that are folded together into sections (also known as signatures). The stack is then bound together along one edge by sewing them with thread through the folds and adding a layer of adhesive. For protection, stiff boards will be attached to the bound stack. An attractive cover is also attached to the boards, so you are able to personalize your book to suit you!

What will you be making?

You will be making a hard-back hand-bound book, made with blank drawing paper so it can be used as a notebook or sketchbook. It would also make a perfect gift!


What’s included?


We will supply the all the components and tools needed to create your own hand-bound book!
