Book folding

Fieldhead Campus, Fieldhead Hospital, Ouchthorpe Lane, Wakefield, WF1 3SP

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Book folding is a great way to reuse old, unwanted, hard cover books by following a pattern.

Marking two measurements and making two folds on each page, a design or word begins to appear.

During the workshop we will fold a heart design into the centre of your chosen book. You will then have time to decorate the cover and some of the image you have created; what a great hand made gift to give someone for a birthday present or start early and make them for Christmas presents, whilst you are sat at home.

Please note: You will need to bring along a couple of old books to create your designs on.  You can easily pick them up in charity shops for a good price.  Books with hard back covers are  best for this type of crafting.


You will need to bring a couple of used books with you to complete your design in and take home with you (hardback books are better for book folding as they are able to stand up on their own), as well as a ruler, a pencil and a pair of scissors. We are unable to provide equipment for this course at this time.
