Every Bag Book is handmade and takes an average of ten hours to make. In addition to a team of skilled craft artists making the books, Bag Books is fortunate to benefit from the help of over 140 volunteers.

Bag Books’ volunteers contribute around a third of all our craft hours with staff making up the other two-thirds. Our volunteers assist with a wide range of craft skills from knitting, sewing and sawing to painting, sticking and drilling. They are invaluable and help to keep down the cost of book production.

Bag Books is always on the lookout for volunteers with a range of skills. We are especially keen for experienced sewers and knitters, but all levels of craft skills are welcome along with a genuine passion for creating high-quality multi-sensory resources for people with learning disabilities.
