In every household we encounter numerous projects that require the boxing of books.

In this Workshop we will brush up our skills in board construction and covering technique, explore box structure through a bookbinder’s eye and have a lot of fun  … by making a Clamshell Box.

Students will build their own custom clamshell box designed to fit a particular book, series of prints, music or pamphlets which they have brought from their own collection.

Residential Fees From: £348.   Non Residential: £233
