Binding classes

Our bindery devotes time to teach the craft of bookbinding.
We offer binding classes in weekly evening courses and workshops during one or more days.
Since 2011 we organise masterclasses of more days for which we invite reputable, international well known bookbinders as guest teachers.
In collaboration with Elbel-Libro Bookbinding in Amsterdam we organize Meet & Greets with these guest teachers during their stay here.
The masterclasses take place in our bindery in Blokker .

Bindery Wilgenkamp is Certified Elbel Libro Instructor.
In 2018 the 'Bookbinding Out of the box' structures as developed by Benjamin Elbel will be part of our workshop program.
