Places available!

Two places have become available on the above course which runs over nine weekends, starting in September 2024.


The course follows on from last year’s Beginners level and is suitable for those who have had some experience in bookbinding. It will be held at Western Region’s new bindery,

Hestercombe House, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton TA2 8LG.

The cost to students is £675 for Western Region members and £800 for non members.  A deposit of £100 is required by 30th May with the balance payable by 15th July. Anybody needing to pay with different timing, will be able to discuss this at the relevant time.

Course dates


Sept 28-29, Oct 26-27, Nov 23-24


Jan 25-26, Feb 22-23, March 22-23

April 26-27, May 24-25, June 28-29


The Intermediate year will be taught by Nesta Davies and Angela Sutton, and will concentrate on two bindings, a quarter leather hollow-back binding sewn on tapes  and a half leather tight-back binding sewn on raised cords.

The course will include (or introduce you to!) leather paring, knife use and sharpening, and different types of laminated boards, hand sewn end bands and endpapers. It should both introduce new skills and techniques  and tighten up those already learnt. We like to see it as a firm step towards our third (Advanced level) year – so the best practice possible will be our aim!
