Soon after Gutemberg’s movable type invention in 1450, the Republic of Venice became the world leader of the book industry. Of course, this created an opportunity for developing even further artisanal bookbinding, which soon became one of the main activities in the city.
This experience gives you the opportunity to discover the traditional Venetian bookbinding technique, and create your first notebook making use of it!
Together with your host, you will make use of ethical and high-quality Italian leather and of renown Fabriano Art Paper to craft your first entirely handmade notebook. Of course, the notebook you create is for you to keep… or to gift to someone special!
You can choose from Two sizes of books: A4 (Large) or A5 (Medium). The price of the experience varies according to your preferred book size.
For vegans and vegetarians, who might be interested in this experience but would rather not work with leather, paper can be used instead of the skin.
If you’re an artist, a designer, or a handicraft person, this is a must-try experience!
Please note that the cost of this private experience depends on both your favorite option and the number of people in your party
