Blaise Bookbinding

DSC01738

Lydia Cole set up her own bindery, Blaise Bookbinding, in Kendal four years ago. She completed her bookbinding training with Ged Brady at Brady Bookbinders at Lancaster University. Her apprenticeship was three years during which she was fortunate enough to have one to one training with Ged, her journeyman, who has over 30+ years of experience. Lydia's training involved thesis binding, cloth bindings, leather work and gold tooling along with restoration and repair work.

"I had always wanted to learn the skill of bookbinding and when an opportunity arose to become an apprentice I jumped at the chance. It's really rewarding having the practical skill to be able to repair or restore a book and bring it back to life."
