Bookbinding Workshop - Intermediate

Come along to our Bookbinding Workshop to spend some quality time working on your bookbinding or book conservation projects.

This is a lovely, welcoming intermediate group with some learners who have been attending for many years, and some newer to the college.

Please note that this is an Untutored Workshop, so this is for experienced bookbinders who can work on their own projects. There will be a tutor available to offer technical advice and keep an eye on health and safety in the room, but they will not be teaching the class.
