We Make Books! is an artist-led educational organisation that aims to promote the craft of bookbinding and the book as an art object in its own right, through courses, exhibitions and events.

We deliver workshops for adults, children and families at different locations across London and the UK, from galleries and creative spaces to schools, colleges, fairs and arts events.

We can tailor a workshop or course for any occasion, theme, age group and experience of participants. All materials and equipment are provided. If you would like us to run a workshop at your event, arts organisation or educational institution please get in touch via email.
