Great class! The kit included everything you needed to make the notebook during the workshop and another one after. Amber was really clear at explaining all the steps and offered lots of tips on how to use the tools correctly and where to buy more materials from. Can't wait to do the Hardback binding class now!

Great and easy to follow. Amber was a great teacher and her passion for it really shone through. The class was perfectly paced as well, to be able to keep up while keeping it interesting.

Fun class. You’ll receive materials by post in time and in the colours of your choosing. Friendly teacher who is experienced in book-binding. Definitely recommend this class! Good tips like angle of knife etc really helped get better end results. It’s handy to follow the printed instructions before attending class as it made the class easier I found to make one practice notebook first.
