Bookbinding Workshops

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, and other occasional workshops are organised in other locations.

Intermediate level binders who would like to further develop specific skills or would perhaps like to move on to creating their own design bindings may be interested in the possibility of tailored one-to-one tuition with Glenn at his bindery in East Yorkshire. Please e-mail for further information.

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.

Workshops in Hull 

A number of one-day workshops are being arranged for the coming months and will normally be at Hull ScrapStore, which is just off Hessle Road in Hull. Not only does this venue offer a great workshop space, but it also has a fabulous shop selling all sorts of craft supplies including many items at ridiculously low prices and constantly changing stock! 


Tuesday 12th July 2022
Commencing 10:00am at Hull Scrapstore
The Crossed Structure Binding
£50 Including all materials


This popular style of binding is non-adhesive with flexible covers and was originally developed by Carmencho Arregui.
The book block is sewn directly onto the cover and the design can be adapted to incorporate a number of alternative design elements. 
This book structure is suitable for beginners as well as those with some experience of bookbinding.
No special equipment is required to make this book so it can easily be made at home with basic tools.
There are a maximum of ten places available so booking is essential.

Please Click Here for more information and booking. 

*** There is currently only ONE place left (as at 1st July) ***

More workshops will be planned for the Autumn
