Beginners Book Binding with Woodle Books- SOLD OUT

7 August 2023 

Beginners bookbinding with Woodle Books.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those who may have

dabbled during their university course.

Learn how to make books with Aimee from Woodle Books. Aimee has been

bookbinding since 2012 and has worked for the Royal Collection at Windsor

Castle and prestigious London Book Binders.

Woodle Books was started in 2017 when Aimee decided she wanted more

freedom to do the work she wanted. Now specialising in handmade

notebooks and private conservation work she was also commissioned to

write a book during the Lockdown years. Sharing her passion for book

binding with the wider world has been very rewarding. Bookbinding is a

craft not a lot of people know is achievable at home with a few simple tools.

During the workshop you will be taught how to fold and manipulate paper

and why grain direction is so important and how it’s recognised. You will get

to choose the bookbinding cloth you cover your book with and get to

choose the endpapers as well. A few trade secrets will be shared, including

how to lock your thread onto your needle. All materials and specialist tools

will be provided for you. At the end of the workshop you will have an A6,

170GSM, plain paper, single section notebook and the skills to go ahead

and make more.


Monday 7th August 11 - 3

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided, we will have a short break for

refreshments so feel free to bring snacks with you as well.
