Take home a beautiful multi-sectioned sketch book you've bound yourself.

On this one day course you will be taught how to make a multi-sectioned sketchbook.

You will be taught how to prepare sections for sewing, endpapers and quarter case making.

Prior completion of the single section beginners course would be helpful but not necessary.

The course is suitable for complete beginners or for anyone with a little knowledge wishing to learn more.

During the course you will be taught the correct terminology, alongside the hands-on tutorial, plus a few tricks of the trade along the way.

“I had a wonderful time, despite being unable to judge the middle of anything! Mr Grech was a very encouraging teacher, with endless patience. I shall be practising notebook making with enthusiasm, as I think this is something I could really enjoy and find useful.”
