Bookbinding Workshop with Knife and Faulkner Print

2nd April 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

During this 1.5 hour workshop, Sian from Knife and Faulkner Print will guide you through the process of making your own hand bound notebook.

Sian will start at the very beginning, teaching you how to stitch and create the paper ‘signatures’ that will make up the book. She will then guide you through the Coptic stitch method, to combine your newly stitched sections and will help you to create a stylish patterned cover to complete your notebook. This is the perfect workshop to introduce yourself to a new craft process, and set you on course with the basic skills to make your own books in the future.


PLEASE NOTE – This workshop will take place inside the Artists’ Book and Print Fair as part of Printed Bound 2023, so the setting may be noisy and therefore unsuitable for anyone with sensory sensitivity.

Entry to the market is included in your workshop ticket – just show your email confirmation to the staff on the door when you arrive.

Suitable for ages 14+. Sharp tools will be used for this workshop, and a fair amount of dexterity is needed.

All materials are included in your ticket.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops and events taking place as part of Printed Bound 2023 around the site of Sunny Bank Mills.
