Would you like to bind a special book or repair an old favourite? Whether you’re a more experienced binder or a beginner, you will enjoy working in Dillington’s light, airy and well-equipped studio (with fabulous views!). Whatever your leve, you will have the opportunity to pursue your own projects of repair or new binding under the guidance of our expert tutor. Or, if you wish, you can concentrate on the weeks optional focus. Beginners will be led through the basics of book binding, enabling them to embark on their own projects. Those who attended January’s introductory bookbinding course will be helped to develop their skill to the next stage. Please note there is an additional £10 payable to the tutor for materials. The optional focus for this course will be half and full-leather bindings.
