Clovelly Craft Workshop – Introduction to Bookbinding
June 13 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm£55
Q: What do you get when you add a Bicentennial Celebration of the life of Victorian writer Charles Kingsley who lived in & loved Clovelly, and a professional bookbinding tutor who lives in & loves Clovelly?
A: A Bookbinding Workshop in Clovelly! 🙂
Spend a day with professional bookbinder, Mandy Flockton, from Learn Bookbinding.
In this full day workshop you will learn traditional multi-signature binding, suitable for complete beginners. You will come away with a beautiful hard-backed half-cloth A5 book that you have made yourself from start to finish.
Mandy has taken traditional bookbinding methods out of the bindery and on to the kitchen table. You’ll be able to continue making stunning hardback books at home without the need for any special tools or materials
This workshop will be held in the Hamlyn Room at Clovelly’s New Inn, right in the heart of the village. Booking price includes entrance to Clovelly & all tools/materials required on the day.
