Keith started his apprenticeship straight out of school at 16, working at Grays Bookbinders of London. During this time he attended the London College of Printing where he gained his ‘City and Guilds’ certificate in advanced bookbinding.
Wilhelm brings a wealth of European experience to our team. Born in Switzerland, he completed his apprenticeship at Muller Brothers Hand Bindery.
In Stockholm, Sweden, he later obtained certificates of Advanced & Art Bookbinding, including execution of gilt edges. After working in both Sweden & Switzerland, he immigrated to North America where he has held positions in both the USA & Canada.
Being Keith’s daughter Stacy grew up in and around the bindery for most of her childhood, often working summers doing odd jobs around the shop. Perhaps then it is no surprise that after completing University she returned to the bindery in 2012 to learn the art of bookbinding from her father.
Mansoureh worked at the National Museum of Iran in the department of restoration and conservation for 23 years. After immigrating to Canada she joined Felton Bookbinding in 2017.
