I would hihgly recommened signing up for the binding course at LCC as we only learnt very simple binds. The structures I learnt were things Iearnt elsewhere. The course is only £20-30 and is attended by people from all courses across UAL.The course, like everything is what you make of it. I would just say to make the most of the facilities because they are superb (I'm speaking mainly about print workshop and letterpress) and are free!
Enjoy it too
