Try basic bookbinding skills and gain the confidence to continue making beautifully bound books and notebooks from home. You'll be introduced to some bookbinding tools as well as basic bookbinding techniques.

 

This kit includes materials and accompanies an online course where you learn how to make: 

A single section, quarter-bound cloth notebook, the perfect keepsake for storing your own thoughts or for gifting to the writer in your life.

A concertina book, this versatile structure resembles a concertina, an instrument similar to an accordion. It is a stitchless, folded binding that can be creatively adapted to a large range of projects. 

A pamphlet binding, this book uses a single section and is bound along the spine with a running stitch. The cover and pages are sewn at once.  It is a smart binding, perfect as small notebooks or for showcasing your work.

 

You will receive a kit (pictured) that allows you to create six books, two books of each structure (finished books pictured), and get introduced to specialist bookbinding tools as well as some basic book-binding techniques.
