Upcoming workshops 2019

Here is my schedule of bookbinding workshops for 2019. I will be giving 4 public workshops, two in Bantry as part of the West Cork Literary Festival and the other two in Dublin.

I teach bookbinding to all ages, levels and abilities. If you are interesting in having a one-to-one workshop, CPD training or something else, please contact me at eilis@foldedleaf.ie and I’d be happy to tailor something to suit your needs.
