Never tried bookbinding? Gie it a bash
During the main season I offer scheduled afternoon sessions in beginner’s bookbinding. It’s a great opportunity to spend a couple of hours with a few other interested individuals as I walk you through the steps to creating your very own book. They are usually held on Wednesday afternoons, starting at 14.00 and lasting for 1.5 to 2 hours.
Each participant will leave the session with at least one book that they have created themselves – and hopefully a greater appreciation for the craft of bookbinding, and maybe even the start of a new hobby / obsession.
No experience necessary, all tools and materials are provided. I change the content of these workshops every year, so if you’ve come before feel free to join in again and learn a new technique.
Each session is a standalone event, perfect if you’re just on the island for a few days and want a unique handmade memento of your time on Iona.
Class sizes are kept small to ensure each person can be given individual attention.
Please note these workshops are not suitable for children.
