Angela Sutton taught bookbinding at South Worcestershire College (formerly Malvern Hills College) in Malvern for many years, and also at Urchfont Manor in Wiltshire until its closure by the County Council in 2012.

She is also one of the tutors on the residential bookbinding courses at Dillington House (click for website) near Ilminster in Somerset, which are held three to four times a year, lasting from one day to four full days.

Angela Sutton’s bindery is in Malvern, Worcestershire, and she will arrange personalised tuition here to suit individual requirements, either for single students or for groups of up to four people. A group of friends may come together, or someone may give a friend a day’s bookbinding tuition as a birthday present. Please email Angela Sutton for details.
