Kami is a lovely setting for this class, not only because it is a beautiful shop but because of the little things, like the green tea and biscuits during the class. The bookbinding class was great, we packed a lot in but it was really interesting listening to the instructor's experience and enthusiasm and she was very willing and helpful. It worked well to work at your own pace and get help when needed. Thanks to all involved.

This was a very enjoyable class and a lovely store to browse through afterwards. Tea and cookies were a nice touch. I'd be interested in doing another class in future.

I really enjoyed this class at Kami paper. The venue is lovely, easy to get to via public transport, and a peaceful little haven in bustling Fitzroy. The teacher was very knowledgeable and broke down what we were doing into manageable chunks. We were free to work at our own pace which I liked. Overall I thought this was a great introductory course to bookbinding techniques.



Thank you for your kind review, Samantha, we look forward to your next visit.
