Making Books with LCBA at the Royal Society of Sculptors

We’re hosting a special bookbinding workshop at the Royal Society of Sculptors!

A fun and social evening in a unique setting exploring the rich archive of the Society and crafting your very own hand-made book.

We will begin the evening with a brief introduction and a show-and-tell of some books from the Society’s library & archive, a collection spanning its century-old history. 

Participants will then be taught how to fold and manipulate paper using specialist bookbinding tools and learn to make by hand a case bound notebook. On completion of the workshop, participants will leave with their very own notebook and the skills to make more at home.

Royal Society of Sculptors is the oldest and largest organisation dedicated to sculpture in the UK, based in the historic home of sculptor and Society fellow Cecil Thomas in South Kensington.

London Centre for Book Arts is an artist-run open-access and education resource centre dedicated to book arts and artist-led publishing. The Centre opened in 2013 in Fish Island, becoming the first and only centre of its kind in the UK.
