About your mentor
Rachel Ward-Sale
When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
I studied Art, Design and Bookbinding at The University of Brighton from 1977 – 1981. After winning the Designer Bookbinders competition in 1980 and 2004 I was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2005. Since leaving college I have worked as a self-employed bookbinder, setting up Bookbinders of Lewes in 1992 at the Star Brewery. A large proportion of my work involves the repair and rebinding of old books, but I also produce small editions and one-off presentation bindings. I teach bookbinding at venues around the country, including West Dean College Chichester, as well as classes in my bindery with my colleague Jill Prole.

Cancellation Policy
No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.

My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.
