Beginners Bookbinding



13:00 – 15:30BST

Learn the basics of Japanese bookbinding in a fun afternoon at The Smallprint Co!

The session is ideal for anyone looking for a relaxing and crafty afternoon with friends and family.



Experiment with simple binding techniques to create a journal, sketchbook, scrapbook or album.

The session is ideal for beginners who would like to spend a couple of creative hours in the studio!

On the Day
Hannah will teach a small group the basics of a simple bookbinding technique – known as Japanese, Stab or Four Eye Binding – and how to make a hardcover for your project.

Expect to take away a beautifully bound hard backed book for your collection.

Materials and light refreshments included.

We don’t provide food but you’re most welcome to bring refreshments with you. Food can be enjoyed in the Creative Space or our little courtyard during the warmer months. We can also recommend some lovely local places to eat.

Making a special trip to Derby? We can also recommend places to stay and things to do.
