Announcing a New Study Opportunity…

June 8 — 17
Dragon Press Bindery
Highworth, Wiltshire

Book Camp offers four 2-day classes on various topics, and is designed for anyone working in the various book art fields or conservation who are keen to learn more about bookbinding.

Tuition will be given by the four founders of Book Camp at this purpose-built bindery set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. You are welcome to camp in the spacious grounds of the house, or stay in a local B&B.

The programme includes:

  • Vellum Binding with Michael Burke
  • Edelpappband with Dieter Räder
  • Leather Facsimile Chemise with Philippa Räder
  • Library Style Binding with Dominic Riley

Tutors and students will share all meals and enjoy informal presentations in the evening, followed by time around the camp fire. On the free day between classes there will be visits to places of special interest nearby.

Fees will include tuition, all meals, detailed hand-outs and all materials.
