Our new and exciting workshop linked to the Lost Librarian Tour in 2021. Design your own exquisite bamboo-covered notebook.

Welcome to our Lost Librarian ONLINE Workshop .

This online workshop will guide you through 2D Vector Design to create your own design to add to the front cover of your own exquisite bamboo-covered notebook (blank inside). Our Digital Making Tutor, Marcus Brown, will guide you through the process and will laser-engrave your design for you - you can then either collect it from Exeter Library when we notify you it's ready or we can post it to you.

On the date of your chosen workshop you will be emailed a PDF document that contains notes and links to tutorial videos. You will be able to access the tutorial videos 24/7 at a time that suits you.

When your design is completed, email it to us and we will create your beautiful notebook for you and we'll let you know it's ready for collection (or you can pay for us to post it to you anywhere in the UK).

Please note that designs should be sent in to us within two weeks of your workshop date. Each notebook we make will require one paid ticket. We are able to make additional copies of your notabook design - contact us by email for details about this.

This workshop is based on laser-engraving one bamboo covered notebook on the front cover. The notebook will be provided within the fee.


You can either hand-draw your design in black pen or you can use FREE software called Inkscape which you will need to install onto your Windows or Mac computer. It doesn't work on Google Chromebooks. To see more details about Inkscape and to download it, do visit: inkscape.org

You will need an internet connection.
