Gie it a bash
We know books have been made on Iona at least as long ago as the 9th Century when the Book of Kells was created, and likely long before that. Now you can try the craft yourself while you’re visiting the island.
Starting in 2021 I will be offering afternoon sessions in beginner’s bookbinding. Spend a couple of hours with a few other interested individuals and myself as I walk you through the steps to creating your very own book.
No experience necessary, all tools and materials are provided.
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.

I’m happy to run workshops by request as well, if you’d like a dedicated session for you group or want to learn something specific. Just get in touch and we’ll discuss the possibilities.
