Perfect Bindings workshops take place at arts centres and book festivals in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Bespoke workshops can also be arranged for groups and individuals, contact me for details.

On a typical one day workshop two different kinds of books are made, with core bookbinding skills learned along the way. The emphasis is on sound techniques and good design, and participants take home their own handmade books and the skills to make more. The workshops are suitable for beginners as well as for those who would like to build on their skills. Places are limited to 10 and all the materials and equipment are provided.
