Free to attend

The Making Publics Press is setting up for the day at CREATE in Kyle. Drop in anytime to find out more about our bookbinding equipment and bind your own book to take home.

At the open day you will learn how to use the equipment and we can help answer any questions you may have, whatever stage your project is at. Inductions take about 20 mins, all materials will be provided along with tea, coffee and baking!

The Making Publics Press is a book making studio, which has all the equipment you will need to design, print, bind and trim your own books and publications. The main purpose of the press is to support the making of small runs of creative book projects, quickly and cheaply – getting books out into the world and across Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh.


Create is up a fight of stairs, there are toilets and a small kitchen with microwave and kettle. Directly outside there is parking for a small number of cars. There is no wifi but 4G signal is good. If we can make it any easier to attend please get in touch. All ages are welcome and the press can be fun to try for ayone but young children will need adult supervision.
