Những điều bạn sẽ làm

Are you a book worm? Do you love the smell of (old) books? In this 3 hour workshop you will get a taste of the craft of bookbinding. You will make a non-adhesive binding using a traditional binding style that emerged in the late middle ages. You will get to grips with paper, thread and needle by starting of with a pamphlet binding. You will learn about paper grain, how to fold sections, how to sew this into a pamphlet binding.
From their we will move on to your second binding, which is a long stitch binding. This is a multiple section binding, whereby the cover is sewn on directly using long stitches. You learn to make a cover with leather spine panels and tying up laces.
Other things to note
Classes are small and Ineke is a former teacher. All who can put a thread through a needle or went to school as an infant can follow this experience.

We are a Dutch couple that run since 2002 the Ox Bindery in the heart of the Ox Mountains. Benjamin is a qualified bookbinder and ICRI-accredited conservator in books, paper and parchment with over 20 years of experience. Our clients include libraries and universities. As well as conservation work we create new bespoke bindings. We are using traditional materials and binding techniques - often adapted from original historical binding.
A highlight has been " Yeats 150" bindings commissioned by the Irish government as special gifts for the US president Obama, his family and the Irish President.
In 2019 we rebound 109 ledgers from the Shelbourne hotel in leather and gold tooling.

We offer also weekend bookbinding classes, please visit the website of the Ox Bindery.

We run a self-catering accommodation 'Bed in Barn' also listed on Airbnb

The bookbinding class will take place in the heart of the Ox Mountains in our purpose built book conservation studio, equipped with cast iron antique book presses, board shears, guillotine cutter, foil blocking press etc. On this place was once a garage and before that a shed, as part of a small holding (farm) with a barn opposite the road, that is converted into a self-catering accommodation.

This was an amazing afternoon. Benjamin and Ineke made us feel most welcome. We learned how to make a medieval book from start to finish. Benjamin is a wonderful teacher who has an abundance of patience. He is very knowledgeable on his topic and I found his stories most interesting. As I went to leave I noticed I'd left the lights on my car and my battery was flat. I was most grateful for Benjamin's help in having it jump started. He was more than happy to go over and above the call of duty.

This was a really interesting workshop with a talented and knowledgeable host. I came away with two notebooks and possibly sufficient knowledge to try more at home!

What a great experience. First Benjamin worked with the Irish National Archives previously saying parchment after a fire, he has a unique perspective. We had such a great time, if you're into books, binding, history (a bit) etc this was just such a cool experience. Not to mention the books/bindings they had for sale. Ineke made us all a fresh Apple coffee type cake, along with coffee/tea at the break and we chatted for so long we ran over the 3 hours. In the end we had zero regrets and couldn't be more pleased with our afternoon with Ineke and Benjamin!!!

Ineke and Benjamin were SO nice and welcoming and passionate about their life in Ireland and of course passionate about bookbinding! Their property is also amazingly gorgeous located in the beautiful Ox Mountains of County Sligo, surrounded by beautiful spruce forests. Benjamin was an excellent teacher, explaining every step clearly and patiently helping us with every part. He is a highly qualified bookbinder and conservator who has worked for the National Archives of Ireland. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be able to work with him in his studio. They also have a small selection of handbound books and journals for sale in their little shop including mini book charms, beautifully-bound books of poetry, and girdle books which make for truly unique gifts or souvenirs! As a bit of a medieval history nerd I was SUPER excited to find the girdle books as I’d only ever seen them in paintings from that era. It was by far my favorite souvenir that I picked up on that trip! I’ve definitely never found another experience like this anywhere in the world—it was the highlight of our trip! In fact, I enjoyed the experience so much that I have started thinking about going back to do one of their more intensive courses that they offer as well! Highly, highly, highly recommend this experience!
