Self paced kits & workshops

The workshops 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 purchase access to the tutorials only and source your own (a kit list will be provided).

You will have continued access to my video tutorials so can log in and out as works best for you. Each workshop also comes with a list of useful links and resources, should you wish to make more books in different sizes.

These kits make for great gifts and 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.


Bookbinding & Botanicals

This Bookbinding & Botanicals workshops series covers how to make a set of reusable botanical stamps and shares 3 book projects that incorporate your hand-stamped papers – a Japanese Stab twig book, cut and fold book and pressed leaf pamphlet stitch notebook.

The botanical stamps I show you how to make can be reused again and again to make everything from decorative paper to artwork, cards and wrapping paper – it’s a great technique that gives impressive results! The books themselves make for lovely personalised gifts too!

This workshop is open to adults & children (with some supervision, especially when it comes to using the pointy tools) and can be a great thing to do together.

  • £20 for access to my video tutorials / I have also created a limited edition of accompanying kits, which include everything you need to make a set of stamps and two of each book – from £35 (includes access to tutorials). For more information and to purchase, click here.

Layered Cross Stitch Journal

Layered Cross Stitch

My most popular kit and tutorial combo – this leather or vegan leather journal contains a mix of patterned and plain papers bound together with a decorative exposed cross stitch.

A great technique that makes for an eye-catching sketchbook, diary or journal, with lots of opportunity to personalise. Buy access to just the tutorials or add a specially curated bookbinding kit with all the tools and materials you need to make 2 A6 size books. If you already have the tools you can also buy access to just the materials.


Mini Bookbinding

Create 4 mini leather or pleather covered books, each featuring a different exposed stitch and fastening technique – these make great gifts and are a brilliant way to use up off cuts and smaller pieces remnant material.

Kit option includes everything you need plus some chocolate coins and my favourite Chai tea to bring some festive vibes. 


Coptic Binding

Get to grips with Coptic Binding and create a hardback A6 portrait and A7 landscape book with collaged cover and button / ribbon fastening. A decorative stitch that makes for a great sketchbook, Artists Book, photo album and/or memory book.

This kit includes all the tools, materials and know how to make 3 of my favourite book structures – an accordion fold book, Japanese Stab Bound book and an exposed long stitch leather/pleather journal. A great opportunity to get to grips with a range of book making techniques and create a collection of books in various sizes, from A7 to A5 that make great sketchbooks, notebooks and journals.
