City & Guilds Beginners’ Bookbinding Evening Course

15th, 22nd, 29th May and 5th, 12th, 19th June 2018, 6pm - 9pm

Shepherds Bookbinders are pleased to launch all new City & Guilds Bookbinding Courses, London in partnership with St Bride Foundation. Part 1 Level 1 Unit 118 is the first of the four units in the City & Guild Bookbinding certificate.

For absolute beginners, this is the first unit of a Level 1 City & Guilds Bookbinding course. During the course you will learn essential bookbinding skills and gain experience in the use of materials including adhesives, papers and cloths.

The course will cover how to make pamphlet & multi section books exploring a range of sewing techniques, end papers and cover styles. All materials included.

Students are welcome to undertake the course without enrolling for a City & Guilds qualification. Those who wish to achieve a City & Guilds Award will need to complete a further 15 hours of personal binding and reproduce what is covered on the course at home. This work will need to be accompanied with supporting evidence of design in the form of sketches and notes. The resulting work will then be marked and graded. If students want to achieve a City & Guilds Award participants will need to register with Shepherds before the marking process; this carries a £31 administration charge.

Following the completion of the first Unit, students will have the opportunity to undertake awards in a further 3 Units, along with a design unit, which lead to a City & Guilds Certificate.
