Bookbinding and Publishing

Please note that workshops are subject to cancellation during the current Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic. Email for more information.


We offer two bookbinding workshops: Japanese and Coptic. Both use decorative stitches to bind pages in different ways.

Japanese Binding allows single sheets to be bound, which is ideal for a collection of sketches, poems or writings perhaps.

In Coptic Binding, signatures are created by folding sheets of paper, and the stitches are sewn through the folds. This technique allows the finished book to open completely flat.

Both techniques are suitable for beginners.
