Are you keen to try out a new creative hobby? Join Isabelle for this bookbinding for this class aimed at beginners 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.

Isabelle will teach you three different bookbinding techniques, you will make your own Leather Venetian journal, a Japanese stab-binding book, and a pamphlet book.

In a few hours you will learn how to make three vastly different projects:

This class is beginner-friendly, perfect for anyone looking to get into bookbinding. No prior experience necessary. The workshop does require a certain level of capability and confidence in using sharp instruments and being able to follow verbal instructions is expected.

What is the difference between your physical and online programme?
For the most part, there is very little that separates our online and physical programs – both are interactive, cover the same theoretical concepts, and give students a range of opportunities to practice and develop their skills. The actual learning outcome remains the same for both classes.

How am I eligible for refresher prices?
You are able to book in to the special refresher price, if you have completed the EXACT course with us before. i.e, this is the 2nd, 3rd etc time you are taking the same class at the Owl and Lion Bindery. No exceptions shall be considered.

Wild Binders Club members often receive an additional discount price on top. 

No refunds for Online workshops once commenced. A Zoom link shall be sent out to you a few days before. We shall start gathering students 10 minutes before the workshop. Lateness shall not be accommodated.
