My lively programme of online bookbinding workshops share my passion for making books out of upcycled materials and aim to equip you with the skills to make unique and usable books from the comfort of your own home!
> If in-person classes are more your thing, check out my ‘In-person’ workshops page for info on upcoming workshops in and around the central belt in Scotland.
To help you navigate my online workshops, I have split them into the following categories: self-paced kits & workshops, collaborative workshops, weekly workshops and gift vouchers – click on the links below for more information and to book your place…
Self-paced kits and workshops
The workshops listed below are taught via a series of comprehensive and practical video tutorials that you can work through at your own pace. Opt in for a materials/tool kit or source your own using the kit list provided.
- Layered Cross Stitch
- Mini Bookbinding
- Coptic Binding
- The Sketchbook Selection
These kits make for great personal projects and gifts – If purchasing for a special occasion, I will happily include a special message and wrap up extra nice at no extra cost, just get in touch once you have made a purchase to discuss.
I love working with Artists and Makers from other disciplines – this series of collaborative online workshops combine bookbinding with a range of techniques, including – ecoprinting, sketching, writing, cyanotype and relief printing.
These jointly taught workshops tend to be a combination of video tutorials and Zoom live sessions which invite you to meet the Artists, ask questions and get creative in the company of others. The live element of these workshops means that there are key dates for you to consider (highlighted in bold) – once the event date has passed these workshops will be taken down but may be repeated later in the year.
- Eco-print, stitch, and journal – creative workshop inspired by nature / Zoom sessions – 12 & 26 June, 10 & 31 July
- The Art of Journalling – dates for Autumn 2021 coming soon / self-paced version also available
- Letters to the Future: a writing and bookbinding workshop / Zoom session – dates for Autumn 2021 coming soon
- Rainbow Junk Journal – a printing and bookbinding workshop
- Bookbinding & Sketching workshop with ‘The Edinburgh Sketcher’
It’s great to get my weekly classes back up and running again – these usually take place in my studio in Edinburgh or in partnership with the Edinburgh Remakery but due to current circumstances, they are now happening online via Zoom live!
These weekly classes share my passion for making books with remnant materials such as leather offcuts, textile samples, recycled card, paper, beads & buttons, and are a great option if you are keen to explore a range of different bookbinding techniques and make in the company of others.
We will meet on Zoom each week, over 5 sessions, to construct our books and each session will be followed up with a video tutorial that takes you through the stitching part, so that you can pause, rewind and replay as works best for you.
I have two courses due to start in June/July 2021:
- Intro to Upcycled Bookbinding / 24 June – 15 July
- Bookbinding – The Next Chapter / 6 July – 3 August
