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.

Cancellation Policy
Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

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.
