When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
My chief enthusiasms have always been words, books and making things so bookbinding combines these elements perfectly. It's also accessible and fun. As a secondary school English teacher, I worked with young people to give them the confidence to be creative with language. Now I want to explore the possibilities offered by combining words with the craft of constructing books in different forms and expressing ideas in new ways. As a member of the Society of Bookbinders, I have been lucky enough to attend workshops with some expert professionals in this area and, although I'm not an expert myself, I know how satisfying it can be to create something unique and personal, using simple materials with traditional tools and skills. Far from dry and dusty, this is a fascinating world offering endless possibilities for self-expression.
Joel Millerchip
Illustrator and artist.
I’m Joel Millerchip, an artist, ADHD thinker, illustrator and tattooist-in-the-making. Born in Birmingham, blossoming in Suffolk. My distinctive illustrative style is perfect for bold, impactful designs that work perfectly in print, on a wall, on a screen or all over your left leg. I also Lecture and support creative workshops with young people.
Passionate about peoples wellbeing and values
I am patient and understanding of all ages and abilities, I am very good at teaching new skills and supporting peoples needs.
Busy book lover
I enjoy working for Suffolk Libraries and am delighted to be involved in the Blank Page Project.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
