Isabelle offers the largest programme of bookbinding classes for all levels in Sydney. There are workshops covering every stage from beginner to those needing more expertise.
Her specialty is in Traditional Fine Binding, however, with her Arts degree she has a great interest in Artists Books and how that can be utilised as part of your visual language.
Isabelle completed her Fine Arts Degree (Drawing and Painting, Printmaking) at the Edinburgh College of Art, in Scotland. She went on to train as a Bookbinder in Florence, Italy. Isabelle taught the largest programme of bookbinding classes through her bindery the Owl and Lion, situated in Old Town Edinburgh, Scotland. She also travels to teach all over the UK and Europe.
