Bookbinders in the Wild

I’m using this section of my website to showcase books made by the good folk who have taken part in my workshops…

I love seeing the books you make with me and hearing about your journey into bookbinding, and, ever the nosey-parker, am always intrigued to hear what you use your books for and why you like this particularly addictive artform.

So if you’re looking for some booky inspiration or want to hear, first-hand, what taking part in one of my workshops is like, and what it can lead to, read on…

  • Sensory books – a participant on my Accordion Spine Memory Book online workshop shares how she used this book structure to create a sensory book for her daughter who has autism.
  • Joanna’s book stack – a look at the beautiful books created by Joanna following my ‘Upcycled Bookbinding: And sew it continues’ online course.
  • Susan’s textured books – a great example of how different hand-printed papers and woven fabrics can be incorporated into bookbinding.
  • Jana’s story – a really interesting insight into Jana’s mission to make a plastic-free edition of her nature photography book, and how this has led her to discover the joy of bookbinding!
  • Andrea’s story – a self confessed bookbinding addict, Andrea makes books, or ‘Wee Quairs’, for the couples she marries in her role as a Celebrant. A lovely way to celebrate a moment in time and create something that is as individual as the person it is being gifted to.
  • Paulette’s story – a great example of how bookbinding can be used to weave together different techniques, including ecoprinting

I hope to add to this overtime, so if you have done a workshop with me and would like to share your creations and your story, get in touch via
