 The School for Bookbinding Arts

Winchester, Virginia

The School for Bookbinding Arts began in 2002 as the workshop division of Cat Tail Run Hand Bookbinding. Our goal is simple: to make the study of bookbinding and related crafts enjoyable yet substantive.

Our workshops feature demonstrations of techniques coupled with supervised student practice time. The topics in our classes are sure to entice you whether you are interested in bookbinding or the myriad kindred topics that make up paper arts and book craft.

Pushing forward in an uncertain world would be unimaginable without the positive touchstone of handcraft. This is the spirit that moves us each year to try to find ever more interesting and useful courses for our annual line-up. For 2024, we offer abundance with courses in Bookbinding, Paper and Fabric Marbling, Paper Craft, Printing, Book Hardware, & Gold.

We are located outside of Winchester, Virginia, which is about 70 miles west of Washington, D.C., and 45 miles west of Dulles International Airport.
