Since 1997, Bindery Wilgenkamp is established in Blokker, community of Hoorn, the Netherlands, 45 kilometer above Amsterdam.
I bind one of a kind books and boxes or small editions for special occasions, tailor made.
For anyone who wants to learn this challenging and fascinating craft we teach bookbinding in our bindery.
Bookbinding is a modern craft that is still developping with a lot of opportunities to bind your book.
The design, the binding together with the color and choice of materials are determinative for the appearance and use of your book.
I am happy to advise you to make a choice in the materials of good quality I have in stock.
I also produce tailor made boxes, slipcases or another forms of (flexible) book or document protection.
If you are planning to print your own book, please contact the bookbinder first!
I don’t mind to advice you for free before you go to the printer.
After printing I love to bind your book.
Master classes, workshops, courses
I offer lessons in several levels in groups of max. six participants.
As guest teacher I provide workshops on your location for art-schools, all kind of organisations and private groups.
The content of these workshop is always determined in consultation.
Since September 2011 I organise master classes with international well known and respected bookbinders and paperartists.
See Masterclasses in Binding classes.
Being a Certified Instructor; the ‘Bookbinding out of the box’ binding structures by Benjamin Elbel are a regular part of our workshop program.
Meet & Greet
During master classes I organise, if possible, a Meet & Greet moment with our guest teacher for anyone who is interested in books and paper.
The Meet & Greets are organised in cooperation with Elbel Libro Bindery in Haarlem (near Amsterdam).
