If you are interested in learning how to get into bookbinding or would like to develop your bookbinding skills, Glenn Malkin of Signature Bindings runs a number of workshops throughout the year. One day workshops are held at ScrapStore, Hull, whereas three day residential workshops are held at The Grange in Shropshire and other occasional workshops are run by request in other locations.
Intermediate level binders who would like to further develop specific skills or would perhaps like to move on to create design bindings may be interested in the possibility of tailored one-to-one tuition by Glenn at his bindery in East Yorkshire.
Please see below for further details and dates of forthcoming workshops. You can also e-mail Glenn to be added to the e-mailing list to be amongst the first to learn of new workshops as they are organised.

The Grange, Ellesmere, Shropshire
These three-day residential workshops are organised directly by Jon and Rosie at The Grange. Here they run a number of courses including Letterpress workshops, Paper Marbling and Bookbinding for Beginners.
Glenn Malkin tutors three 3-day residential courses each year focusing on different subjects. They are suitable mainly for those who have already done some bookbinding but would like to learn new book structures or techniques. Please note that courses do fill extremely quickly so early booking is essential.
