Welcome to Bookbinders for 2021

Demonstration of Creating Bookcloth

The last few years have been quiet on the Internet front here, although the Guild has been going strongly. Last year was a bit of challenge all round, although we did manage to run about 6 courses. This year we have a full catalogue of courses scheduled again, some of which are now on our Events page. There will be more to come.

After about 8 years we have had a significant change in the committee, with long time President Jo Shoobert stepping down and Peter Ruthven taking on the role. At the same time Tony Lock stepped away from Secretary to become Vice President. A huge thanks to Lucarna Martinelli for accepting the position.

We hope that this year we can provide a newsletter on a regular basis again. Likewise we hope to be able to be more active on the web site, Facebook (who knows what will happen to Facebook) and Instagram.

If you are interested in bookbinding, book repairs or craft in general, come along to one of our meeting nights. See our Events page for all the details.
