Bookbinding Workshop 6th July 2013

Workshop Full
Please contact me if you would like first dibs at my next workshop ... date tbc 

Wow! I am a little overwhelmed at the speed with which my June workshop booked up. Thank you chaps! 
So I would like to offer a third bookbinding workshop in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. The workshop will take place in the Art room above the Art Shop on Saturday 6th July.

During this workshop, I will guide you through the process of making your very own “Open Spine” hand-bound notebook, which you can then take home and enjoy. All abilities are welcome as I will endeavour to adapt the workshop to your requirements.

All materials and specialist equipment will be provided. If you have any special fabric or paper you would like to include then please bring them along too. We will also have access to the materials in the art shop at a discounted price (% tbc). It will be like having our very own arty larder!

Coffee and tea will be provided, but please bring your own packed lunch. If we're feeling a bit flush, we could always pop up the road to the world-renowned Betty's Tea Room.

The Art Shop,  Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29 9DU (on the corner of Hawksworth Street, facing onto Leeds Road - a brisk two-minute walk from the train and bus stations).

Please contact me via  for further information or to book a place. I will be asking for a £10 deposit at the time of booking to confirm your place on the workshop.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Please note that the building is pretty old and the staircase to the art room is a little steep, and may therefore be inaccessible to people with a mobility issue.


  1. How did i miss your workshops :o((
    Best get an email sent for further dates!

  2. Hi Lorna ... I have been completely overwhelmed by how quickly these workshops have sold out ... so they were pretty easy to miss. I plan to do another one late Sept/ early Oct and will add you to the list of people who are interested ( I know! a list! How mad is that?!) K x

    1. Thank you.
      Not suprising they sold out so quickly!
      Your books are pieces of art.

    2. Lorna you are a complete sweetie ... thank you!
