Mariko was trained as a book and paper conservator at the West Dean College, UK. Her passion for bookbinding and book conservation started more than ten years ago and it led her to Edinburgh to study Book History and Traditional British Bookbinding Techniques. After two years in Edinburgh, she arrived in West Dean College where she spent two years learning book and paper conservation. Since she came to Singapore in 2013, apart from her conservation work, she has continued to keep up with her skills and passion by making new books for friends, family and her own bookshelves.
