This course for intermediate students is designed to develop the skills of those who have followed the beginners’ introductory course and would like to pursue the craft further.

Students will rebind a hard-back book in the case-binding style and can continue to practise this or go on to learn the more complex construction of a book covered in leather.  More advanced students may bring a selection of books to either rebind or repair. However, beginners can also be accommodated on this course, and will learn about folding, sewing and making a case-bound book. If students wish to they may study a special subject during the week.

Residential Fees From: £786.   Non Residential: £526

Course runs from Lunch on Monday to Lunch on Friday.
