Welcome to Book Camp
Coming up
8 - 17 June 2018

Ten days of immersive bookbinding, comprising four two-day workshops with a mid-point break.
Enrolment is flexible on an individual basis: come for just one class; return for another; stay for all...
Book Camp’s founders are professional bookbinders seeking to provide a new educational venture as a response to the ever-increasing need for continuing professional development for binders and conservators, in an age when formal learning opportunities are becoming scarce.

By gathering over ten days, we hope that our four intensive workshops together will benefit those wishing to expand their bookbinding skills and techniques, with participants enjoying a unique experience of learning and exchanging ideas.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
