This will be filled with either a mixture of coloured, or plain cream, pages. These pages will be stitched into the cover completing your gardening notebook.

Garden Journal Workshop - 31st July 2021

  • A lifelong love of books, crafts and sewing came together when attended a bookbinding class. I have always enjoyed making things and bookbinding soon became a new passion. I particularly enjoy turning humble objects such as paper, card and glue into beautiful and practical books. I had worked in adult education for 10 years and I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills to enable others to learn this wonderful craft.

  • Our shop is in a very old building, with narrow winding stairs. The workshops are being held upstairs so unfortunately they are not accessible for wheel chairs.
