I did this class with my 13 year old son and we both loved it! We were delighted with the books we made and both really enjoyed the process. A perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Super therapeutic.

Another great class. The kit arrived in good time and had a variety of pieces to choose from so we can make more. I was really pleased with the book I made and look forward to making more.

This was my first online class with obby and I was a little worried it wouldn’t be as good as an in-person class. I needn’t have worried. The kit fitted through the letterbox and arrived a few days before, all neatly packed with beautiful papers and everything I needed for the class. The Zoom class was great, Ambers camera angles and descriptions were very clear, she was warm, friendly and ran to time. I completed my book without any problems, and the 2 1/2 hours absolutely flew by! I enjoyed seeing what the others had made too, and the only way it could have been improved would be to get us to show each other what we made at the end, I really liked seeing glimpses of everyone’s work. I’ve already made a couple more smaller books this evening, and look forward to refining my new skill during lockdown! I’ve wanted to try bookbinding for ages but could never make the classes, so this was perfect. I’d happily do another online class with Amber or an in person one when we’re all allowed out again!
