Bookbindery Wilgenkamp, 2017: Jubilee Year!

In 2017 we celebrate our 20th anniversary!

We are a artisanal bookbindery, established in Blokker, The Netherlands, since 1997.
Our specialism is making one of a kind books or small edition
s for special occasions, thesis and graduation books, familybooks, collector books etc.
We also teach in our own bindery for anyone who wants to learn this beautiful and fascinating craft.

Binding classes

In the bindery we organise courses and workhops for beginners and experienced binders in groups of max. six people, so there is enough attention for everyone. We also teach on location for schools, companies, organisations and private groups.
Since September 2011 we organise masterclasses with international well known and respected guest teachers. See our agenda in the binding classes agenda.
We are Certified Elbel Libro Instructor and the binding structures 'Bookbinding out of the box' by Benjamin Elbel will be part of our workshop program, starting in 2018..

New workshops, masterclasses and courses for Autumn 2017 and Spring 2018 are on this website now.


Bookbinding is a active craft that is still in development and we have a lot of opportunities to bind your book into a unique and handmade product.
The design, the materials and the binding are determinative for the result.
We advise and help you choose the materiales and binding. We only use materials of good quality so your book can last a lifetime.
We can also produce a box, slipcase or another form of (flexible) book or document protection.


If you are planning to print your own familybook, poems, thesis or dissertation, please contact the bookbinder first!
We are happy to provide you with free advice for the binding before printing.
After printing we love to bind your book.
If needed we have a graphical designer available who can do the layout of your book and make it ready for printing.

Meet & Greet:

During master classes we organise, if possible, a Meet & Greet moment with the guest teacher.
These Meet & Greets are free for everyone who is interested and are organised in cooperation with Elbel Libro in Amsterdam.
You will be informed by our website and our newsletter.
