getting here

(and staying over) 


From 2018 all workshops will move to the new, purpose built bindery of LORI SAUER at Hazel Bank in BEECHINGSTOKE SN9 6HJ. It is a short drive from the previous location in Woodborough so travel times, etc, will not be affected.

Lunch will be provided as will as tea and coffee throughout the day.

It’s very exciting to now have our own space and we hope students will enjoy it.

The final 2 classes in 2017 will meet as usual in the village of Woodborough in a fully equipped bindery with class size limited to eight participants. This is in the premises of an independent charity called BOUND BY VETERANS, set up to rehabilitate disabled soldiers. It is located at the Woodborough Garden Centre SN9 5PF with plenty of free parking and two cafes on site. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day.

BINDING re:DEFINED workshops are very easily reached by road or rail. Located in Wiltshire’s beautiful Vale of Pewsey, we are between the M3 and M4 if travelling by car or only a few minutes from the mainline train service in PEWSEY. If you are without a car let us know in advance so we can arrange to collect you from the station. If trains conflict with class timings you might need to catch a taxi. This also applies if you need transport to and from your B&B.

Why not extend your stay and visit the wonderful prehistoric structures (sorry about the pun) of Stonehenge and Avebury, both within 15 minutes drive. The local market towns of Marlborough and Devizes (Devizes has one of the best antique shops ever, recently featured in Interiors magazine) make a great stopover too. The local B&Bs, listed below, are often located in historic houses and will always make you feel welcome.

There is also a very beautiful cottage available in Marden. It sleeps 2 in a twin room and there is a sofa bed in the sitting room. You can share with friends or have it all to yourself. They do not advertise so contact me if you’re interested.
