This course is for those who have reached an intermediate standard of bookbinding and are looking to expand their knowledge, including those who have taken the beginners' course and would like to progress further. The course will take place in a studio that is well equipped for general bookbinding and students may work on their own projects. The optional special subject for this course will be bibles and large books.
Please note there is an additional charge of £10 towards the cost of general materials payable to the tutor during the course.
Angela Sutton first learnt bookbinding in evening classes with Ian Ross at the former Oxford Polytechnic, and then went to the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts to study archive preservation and repair. She works as a freelance bookbinder specialising in restoration and preservation, and is an established teacher validated by the Society of Bookbinders. She taught the weekly recreational course at the Malvern Hills College (the local adult education institution) for many years, and now runs local workshops as well as giving tuition in her own bindery and teaching regularly at Dillington. Her textbook ‘Bookbinding in Pictures’ , a book (or CD) of bookbinding instructions for beginners, sells widely in many countries. Angela is Chairman of the Birmingham and Central region of the Society of Bookbinders.

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
