  1. Supervised Bindery Access @ LCBA

    We’ve added two days (four sessions) of Supervised Bindery Access to our calendar in March.

    A chance for people to work on independent projects in the LCBA bindery with advice and guidance from experts.

    Supervised Bindery Access is perfect for people who have taken either bookbinding or foilblocking workshops at LCBA in the past. You can revisit skills that you learned in a previous workshop and create your own work from start to finish. There will be an expert on hand to answer any questions that you may have.

    Tools and equipment will be available for use and we will have materials available for purchase.

    We encourage those interested to email us at hello@londonbookarts.org to see if the session is right for their project.

    To find out more, and for bookings please follow the links below.
