"Marysa allowed participants to move at their own pace and develop their own style and she is not only a talented binder and teacher, but an artist as well. Her interpretation of bindings and finishing inspired me to develop books into art."

Cliff Woodward

Whether you’re looking for a serious commitment or simply want to learn something new and have fun while doing it, there’s nothing more important than being taught by an experienced Arts & Crafts Instructor. I’ve been offering my services to people of all ages since 1993, and I’m here to give you the personalised attention you deserve so that you can reach your full potential.

I will show you how to make and encourage the taking of notes and photos and videos as this really helps people to use the techniques when they are not here. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I now teach only one to one or up to two people at a time. I offer the safe space for you to book bind at your own pace and to achieve the goals that you have set yourself.


In order for me to continue to teach with a one to two people at an affordable price, I will be undertaking my own work at the same time. The advantage to this is that you will see a working bookbinding business which will equip you with the knowledge of types of bindings that we make for our customers.

I supplement the 1-2 person classes with Zoom lessons.  If you would like to study for a City and Guilds, I am happy to prepare a pack to send out to you with all the materials necessary for your online class.  I am also happy to send you a shopping list if you would like to source your own materials.  


By appointment lessons are £140 per person from 10am-5pm

Zoom lessons are £57 for 1 ½ hours


Classes and individual tuition are usually held at Otter Bookbinding in Midhurst
