Join us for a lovely relaxing morning making your own beautiful hardcover notebook. You will use lovely patterned papers to make a hardback cover for your notebook and then learn how to stitch together your book using Coptic stitching technique. This stitching technique allows the book to lay completely flat when open and is visible on the spine of the book, making an attractive feature.
Handmade by you, you can put your notebook to good use and you will treasure forever. Use as a journal, small photo album or a fabulous personalised Christmas gift for a friend. This is an opportunity to be creative, time for you to relax and try something new all in the beautiful setting of Nottinghamshire finest wine estates.
