I LIKE BIG BOOKS AND I CANNOT LIE 

Calling all bibliophiles! Are you beloved books crumbling? It’s time to restore your precious pals to their former glory. A dying craft, book restoration involves restoring and repairing all elements of the book, from sewing spines to patching paper.  

In this workshop, you’ll get the low down on repairing and restoring your favourite reads. We’ll cover how to properly assess the damage, how to tone paper to match the original, various methods for repairing broken/crumbling spines as well as paper repair.

This workshop is for absolute beginners and includes all materials, notes, and direct access to Mitch’s mind for seasoned papery guidance. Start the next chapter in your literary adventure and get some shelf-awareness: it’s bound to happen.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals.
