Our Book binding workshop

Our finished notebooks

Enjoy a two hour introduction to bookbinding with our Notebook binding workshop. During the session you will learn how to sew signatures together using a traditional bookbinding stitch, how to make a fabric cover and finally how to bind it all together to make your finished notebook. Participants should expect to complete their own hand bound notebook within the two hour session. You will even get to choose your favorite fabric from our stock.

The workshop can be undertaken at your usual crafting venue. All you need are tables and chairs for all participants. No electrical equipment is required and we will bring all tools and materials for use during the session.
