About this event

An opportunity to make a soft leather covered book known as a Suffolk Book from the 14th century, commonly used by medieval merchants. All materials and equipment supplied and you will have a completed book to take home and use as a sketchbook or perhaps a notebook.

Suitable for Beginners and those over 15 years old.

The workshop takes place in the upper level of the Centre, accessed via a set of wooden stairs which are fairly steep. You can expect medieval experiences of sounds and smells as the building is a visitor centre where other crafts and skills take place on the ground floor.

Due to the character of the building there are no toilet facilities, however, there are public toilets a few strides away. There is a pay and display car park close to the building.

You may like to take advantage of the many eateries in the town including cafes and pubs. There is a good pizzeria almost opposite the building.
