Are you keen to try out a new creative hobby? Join Isabelle for this Bookbinding for Beginners class and learn the basics of creating your own journals and diaries from scratch!

In this intensive class, you'll be guided by an industry professional, as you learn about and familiarise yourself with the materials and various bookbinding techniques such as sewing, cutting and assembling used in this craft practice.

You'll then get the chance to unleash your creativity and design your own items from scratch. Isabelle will teach you three different bookbinding techniques and you'll get to create your own Venetian journal, Japanese stab-binding book, and a pamphlet book.

If you're looking for fun things to do during lockdown why not try out Isabelle's intensive bookbinding class and get in touch with your creative side. Not only will you get the chance to meet like-minded people, in a relaxed and fun environment, but you'll also leave feeling confident in your new skills with a whole new bunch of books to use too!
