Bookbinding: CREATE! Workshop
This day workshop will introduce you to bookbinding through three basic book structures which form the foundation for further, more advanced processes. Over the course of the day you will complete three notebooks, and be taught the correct terminology, alongside hands-on tutorials, plus a few tricks of the bookbinding trade.
If you have a hectic life and have to squeeze your creative time into a tightly-packed schedule, our CREATE! Saturday Sessions are for you! You can learn a new skill and indulge your creativity, and get home in time for tea! All our workshops are suitable for beginners and are taught by expert tutors, and the price of the course includes all materials.
Roger Grech is a bookbinder and printmaker, teaching at York College and edition binding at Stephen Conway Bookbinders Ltd in Halifax. Roger also runs his own workshop, Papercut Bindery, where he binds bespoke journals, small print run editions and undertakes repair work on old well-loved bindings.
This course is suitable for complete beginners or for anyone with a little knowledge wishing to learn more.
All course prices include basic materials such as inks, paper, tools and equipment. Other materials and printmaking papers will be available to buy during the course if you would like to try something a bit different, or take some materials home to try out.

We cannot give refunds for failed attendance due to sickness or external circumstances.
If you would like to transfer to another course, we can do this free of charge providing you let us know three weeks prior to the course start date.
Bookings cannot be transferred with less than three week’s notice, however in the event that you are unable to attend on the day, bookings can be transferred to another person. In this case please inform us as far in advance as possible so that we can update the booking.
