“Freedom, creativity and the good feeling that something useful is being created – these are the cornerstones of the SKOBA workshop.”
“In the workshop I learned about the roots of classic bookbinding, bringing me new ideas and the opportunity to work with friends.”
“I am glad that I do interesting work with friends and that we get to be together. And we have good coffee!”
“SKOBA from above is a gift / full of magic field lines. / Here among the diaries, / my soul has lit up.”
“SKOBA is an inspiring place with a creative muse and a great group of people, all of whom are inspired to work together to create useful things, where the opportunity to recycle used paper and fabrics offers new rewards.”
“I try to make the SKOBA workshop better-known so that more people hear about us. Here and there I come up with an idea of something new to do – that makes everyone happy in the workshop :). SKOBA is a matter of the heart for me.”
In the SKOBA workshop we employ people who have experienced physical and mental health problems. They have found a safe space at SKOBA where they can develop their skills in art and craftsmanship.
We follow the traditions of bookbinding. Thanks to our manual production processes, we can implement our ideas and satisfy our passion for perfect craftsmanship.
We use eco-certified paper such as FSC or PEFC. We recycle and look for new diverse uses of old materials. Thanks to traditional processes, our production leaves a minimal ecological footprint.
