Fourth time lucky! Our thrice-postponed programme has been rescheduled: Book Camp 2022 will take place 4-11 June
Please see the class information page for details
An annual summertime intensive, comprising four consecutive two-day workshops in bookbinding and related fields.
Enrolment is flexible on an individual basis: come for just one class; return for another; stay for all...
Book Camp’s founders are bookbinding and book conservation professionals who have established this 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 eight days, we hope that our four workshops held together will benefit those wishing to expand their bookbinding skills and techniques, with participants enjoying a unique experience of learning and exchanging ideas, immersed in the craft. We will share meals (included in the registration fee) and enjoy informal presentations in the evenings, followed by time around the camp fire. There will be a celebratory BBQ on the final evening.
We look forward to seeing you in June!
