Alison Heath

2014 QEST Clothworkers' Company & Radcliffe Trust Scholar - Bookbinding

Working as a student bookbinder enabled Alison to gain valuable experience in conservation and restoration work, whilst private commissions and personal practice, ensured she has made books from scratch. QEST enabled Alison to complete the Fine Binding: Forward and Covering (Advanced) course at City Lit, London and a one-to-one master course with the respected bookbinder Kathy Abbott, as well as additional tuition in gold tooling with Tracey Rowledge.
