(Formerly The Farthing Press & Bindery)
The courses take place in a workshop situated in the grounds of the house and are structured in such a way that you can learn at your own pace in a friendly atmosphere.
As the courses are one-to-one this does allow for a very high level of individual tuition for the student.
Bookbinding by its very nature is a manual skill, therefore students should possess a certain amount of manual dexterity.
The courses (except for the 2 Day Course) run from Monday - Friday (9 - 5). Over the period of the course you will be guided through all the aspects of bookbinding, relevant to each course.
The 2 Day course is flexible as to the days on which it runs. (We do not run courses at the weekends.)
Each student can expect to complete and take home a selection of books that they have bound. The total number of books depends on which course is being attended and student ability.
All basic materials and tools are provided for all courses, although you would be advised to bring along an apron.
