Create a variety of your own small books using traditional bookbinding techniques in this three-week evening course.

Expanding on ideas of why we love books and their importance, you will be guided through the step-by-step process of bookbinding techniques such as: Japanese stab binding, pamphlet stitch and concertina books.
