“I had a great day this weekend learning how to make a notebook. Ken has a great teaching style and his preparation and attention to detail helped me to produce a book that I am really proud of. Thoroughly recommended.”

“The introductory workshop on bookbinding and repair was excellent. While being thoroughly enjoyable and interesting, it also proved to be very good from an educational perspective – I really did feel that I learned a lot about the subject. (The tea and cake was very good too.) I do now feel that, once I have sourced a few basic tools and materials, I would be able to make a start on my own, which is a fine result from a one-day workshop. You also very kindly helped point us in the direction of possible suppliers, which really helps.”
