What you'll do
First, I'll show you around the SKOBA workshop and we'll perform the basics of handmade notebook production. Then, you will make your own notebook from authentic, locally-sourced materials such as antique Czech magazines, books and posters. You will experience the joys of making something unique with your own hands and creating an original notebook in a sustainable and socially-impactful way. And of course, the notebook is yours to take home and use!

Where you'll be
The SKOBA workshop is located in the Žižkov district that enjoys its own identity distinct from commonly visited, sightseeing places in Prague. As I also live here with my family, I am happy to share all insider tips for this unique bohemian neighborhood so you can further explore it as a local.
