Choose from 3 decorative bookbinding workshops: Long Stitch, Japanese Stab and Coptic Binding. All use decorative stitches to bind pages in different, decorative ways.

Long Stitch Binding is a simple yet very effective way of stitching a cover to the signatures without the need for any glue.

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

In Coptic Binding, signatures are created and the intricate chain stitch is sewn through to bind them to the hard cover. This technique allows the finished book to open completely flat.

All techniques are suitable for beginners.
