Details

Mark Cockram is a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders, who spends his days restoring ancient classics or binding Man Booker winners. For three Tuesday evenings in January 2022, join him to learn how to make your own beautiful book, from scratch.

The sessions will include folding your own paper, hand sewing the pages and creating the cloth spines. You will learn how to use traditional book binding equipment such as a finishing press and Grecquage (a fascinating Ancient Greek method of positioning). Mark will also teach how to use flottage - ink in large trays of water - to decorate your book’s front cover.

As Mark puts it: 'Within the book, an infinitely complex array of materials and techniques come together and combine with a history as rich and diverse as we who create and use it’.

Join us to start a new, creative, skilled and fascinating hobby.

All materials and complimentary drinks included.
