E13: Bookbinding Workshop

The Station, DL10 4LD | 2.00pm to 5.00pm | £50 (including materials) | Café/Restaurant, disabled access.

Have you ever wondered how fine and antiquarian books were made? The art and craft of book making dates back over 2000 years, but whether works from ancient China, Islamic bookbinding, or stately-home libraries, the principles are similar: papers are sewn together and secured within a protective casing. In this workshop led by local bookbinder, Delphine Ruston, you will make two books of your own to take away – a 3-hole pamphlet (or chap book), and a single-section, hardback notebook.

Tickets available from The Station
