She taught bookbinding at Malvern Hills College in Worcestershire for many years, and also residential courses at Urchfont Manor in Wiltshire until its closure by the County Council in 2012. After the transfer of equipment from Urchfont to Dillington House in Somerset, Angela was the programme planner and a regular tutor for the residential courses held there until its closure by the local council in 2023. She continues to teach various workshops at a wide variety of venues.

Angela also runs courses at her bindery in Malvern, Worcestershire, on Tuesdays and occasional Wednesdays to suit individual requirements. Please email for details.

The finished book is superb. Honestly, what an exquisite job you’ve made of it – what a comsummate craftsperson you are. Truly Angie I’m over the moon.
