Online - ‘The Kitchen Table Bookbinder’ incorporating City and Guilds Training

It's now easy to learn bookbinding online. You will master different styles of binding from the comfort of your own home. With my new online bookbinding course, you will learn step by step and gain confidence as you master this ancient craft and develop your skills. Please fill in the contact form to register your interest.

Whether you’re looking for a serious commitment or simply want to learn something new and have fun while doing it, there’s nothing more important than being taught by an experienced Arts & Crafts Instructor. Marysa has been teaching and running her own bookbinding business for over 20 years. The online course has been developed to make it easily accessible and with access to support and the personalised attention you deserve so that you can reach your full potential.

The course structure provides notes, photos and videos which are accessible at all times as this really helps people to use the techniques.

 On-site Bookbinding Days

The workshop also offers small group bookbinding days and has been configured to make social distancing possible and maintain a safe space for you to book bind at your own pace and to achieve the goals that you have set yourself.

Bookbinding weekends take place on the second Saturday-Monday of each month.  To add the dates to your google calendar please click this link

There will be a maximum of six students in three rooms to allow for the safety of all.  

With our on-site bookbinding days, you have the opportunity to work on your own projects at your own pace.

The prices for weekend workshop days are:

1 day - £145
2 day - £280 
3 day - £360
All of our courses can be booked via the links below or by telephone and email.


City and Guilds Qualifications

With our training you can learn as you go along at your own pace with no pressure. This means that you can fit bookbinding into your life without it taking over.

" Marysa is a responsive and instinctive tutor, adapting to the individual needs of her pupils with imagination and long learned practical advice and example. I learned enough in my three days to confidently be able to go home and start making my own books....wonderful!" Ruth Lawrence

" I just wanted to say thanks for a lovely bookbinding weekend. The bindery is wonderful. The group and Quizzy the cat were all brilliant! It was great to be able to get three days in a row." Sam Johns

"Marysa allowed participants to move at their own pace and develop their own style and she is not only a talented binder and teacher, but an artist as well. Her interpretation of bindings and finishing inspired me to develop books into art."
