Great workshop as an introduction into bookbinding. Everything was well organised with a lovely selection of papers to choose from. Amber was a great teacher, very patient and clear. We had a set of notes to refer to and take away at the end, which was really useful for double-checking measurements. 2 1/2 hours was just right, allowing us to work at a good pace. It's a shame that we were tucked away into a room at the back of the cafe as the lighting was poor and we seemed to be rather forgotten when it came to serving our drinks. Full Mark's for Amber though - I'd be happy to do another of her classes.

I loved this course, Amber was great - kind, patient and knowledgeable. I'm ridiculously pleased with the notebook I made :-)
