Making a hand sewn book

In this one-day workshop, we will be looking at making perhaps one of the most important book structure for any bookbinder - the sewn case-bound book.

  • Booking essential

We will fold, pierce and sew the blank sheets to form the book block and use marbled paper from Obelisk Marbling Company to decorate.

This is ideal for those with little or no knowledge of bookbinding and will enable you to make similar books at home without specialist tools.
