Professional book and paper conservator Maudie has worked at many national institutions, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum and The National Archives for many years, as well as taking on private commissions. Then, when an opportunity arose to open a permanent studio as part of Worthing’s East Beach Studios, she grabbed it with both hands and The Book Hut came to life. Situated on Worthing’s seafront next to other artists’ studios, The Book Hut is just a short stroll along from the pier.

The Book Hut offers a range of services in the conservation and restoration of books, as well as bespoke bookbinding, for individuals, private collections and businesses. A range of workshops and tutorials are available for both adults and children, including the basics in bookbinding and paper marbling for children.

If you have any projects you would like to discuss, please just stop by the hut, or send an email. If you are interested in attending any workshops, please just join the newsletter at the bottom of the website for information on new courses, or have a look at Workshops for current courses.
