Edel Hopkin

Handmade books and bookbinding classes.

A career break and an almost-grown family gave Edel the time to explore the craft of book binding, something she had always been interested in. During  the past 8 years she has continued to learn, work and develop her own style.

Her work takes two main forms. She designs and take commissions for a growing range of memory journals collectively called ‘Turas’ (gaelic for journey), which satisfies a passion for passing on family memories through photographs and writing. She also loves taking traditional book binding techniques and adding a contemporary twist. This has extended into upcycling books she finds in our many vintage and charity shops.

Edel now offers a wonderful choice of book binding classes. Please visit her website for details. Her work can be seen at Cambridge Contemporary Craft, VK Gallery and The Over Gallery.
