I was so impressed with the book I made, it looked just like a bought one … I never thought I’d be able to make anything like that!

Annalise / Graphic Design Student

Thank you for the best day-course I have ever attended. I hoped I might at least learn enough to restore a much loved book, not only did I learn that knowledge, I also came away with a new hobby.


The workshop I attended I was really well organised and the instruction was so clear. Mandy was so patient and helpful.


I have two, no wait, three sketchbooks made by Mandy Flockton. They are treasured items with astonishing attention to detail. A pleasure to draw in, they are all filling up!

Having been bought this course as a present by my niece I was delighted that not only was the day thoroughly enjoyable but I’ve also made a couple of new friends.

Mrs Anderson

I loved it! I love trying new crafts and this was like nothing else I’d ever done. Mandy made everything so easy to follow and I can’t wait to make more books. I know what I will be giving for Christmas this year!
