Suitable for complete beginners, with all materials and tools provided.

Learn how to create handcrafted books from experts at the London Centre for Book Arts.

During this workshop participants will learn how to fold and manipulate paper using specialist bookbinding tools, and will learn three versatile book structures – the pamphlet, the concertina, and the Japanese stab binding – which can be used to present work, sketchbooks, gifts, or as the basis for artists’ books

On completion of the workshop students will leave with a set of their own books and the skills to make more at home using minimal equipment.

Introduction to Bookbinding 1 is the first in a four-part series of introductory bookbinding workshops at London Centre for Book Arts. You are encouraged, but not required, to take all four workshops in order. For a complete beginner, taking all four workshops in order will give you a good foundation in bookbinding.
