Simeon Jones

Bookbinding Masterclass 21 and 22 April 10.30am – 4.30pm £120 Includes light lunch

On this intensive two day course participants will make a quarter leather notebook (leather spine and marbled paper boards).

Simeon will take you through the process step by step from making the text block, folding and hand sewing the sections onto tapes to finally pressing your book.

This will be a full weekend of creative endeavour, going home with new skills and a new book.

This is an intermediate level course and requires a reasonable level of hand skills, (having participated in a previous bookbinding course would be an advantage) and as such is not suitable for younger participants. The cost of the course includes a bone folder and paring knife. When booking please specify if you are right or left handed as the knives are specific.
