In conjunction with Designer Bookbinders the Society organises an annual series of weekend workshops. These workshops offer structured, intensive learning from established teachers and are designed to stress the ‘hands-on’ approach where students complete a structure or technique following demonstrations from the teacher. The size of each workshop is limited to allow students to benefit from individual attention.
We’re delighted to be offering our 2022/23 series of DB/SoB Joint workshops and would like to say a big thank you to the tutors and all of you who have been so patient during the often-changed programme dates during the last year. We hope very much that our plans can go ahead.
DB/SoB Joint Workshops – 2022-23
Hooray! The new series of weekend workshops organized by DB and SoB is now in place and available to book.
These workshops offer structured, intensive learning from established teachers in a friendly and cooperative environment and cater for a range of abilities.
Course fees for each workshop are £185 for members of either Society, and £205 for non-members.
Full details are on the Societies’ Websites and here’s a quick glimpse of the series line-up. For more information or to book a place contact email@example.com
