Bookbinding Kits

I have recently launched a series of online bookbinding workshops which share my passion for making books out of upcycled materials and aim to equip you with the skills to make unique and usable books around your kitchen table!

Each Bookbinding Kit (currently posting within the UK) comes complete with all the tools and materials you need, delivered straight to your door, plus exclusive access to video tutorials with step-by-step instructions and links to recommended suppliers.

If you are based outwith the UK and / or already have the tools & materials to hand, some of my video tutorials are now available to purchase without the kit, see below.

Read on for details of the bookbinding kits and online workshops currently available . . .
