Conference 2019brings an exciting change of venue for us, giving you a chance to visit the ancient Roman City of Bath.
The Conference provides a great opportunity for bookbinders of all levels to see demonstrations by knowledgeable experts in a wide range of fields. Amateurs and those with less experience will find inspiration and encouragement; professionals will gain new ideas. If you have not been to a Conference before, you will find it easy to make new friends and to talk to the speakers and other top-level binders. You will find them approachable and always willing to discuss bookbinding matters with you. Competition books will be on display throughout for you to view and enjoy.
The Trade Fair suppliers will be attending with bookbinding materials, tools and books for sale.

We had a great time as your committee representing Bookbinders at the Clunes Booktown May5. Official statistics were 15000 attended in the 2 days. We spent our time doing various book making tasks, case binding boxes, book stitching, and gold blocking. We gave away over 100 bookmarks with personal gold blocked names to the people who stopped by for a discussion. See more about Gold Blocking hands on in the Mat 2019 meeting at West Hawthorn Uniting Church.

A full leather copy of; The Perfume of Books, by Erika Mordek, a book on old bindings, so it deserves a full leather binding with a Cambridge Panel, a trade binding pattern from the late 1700's.. But during the blind tooling an overhot tool burns the leather.
Made a book but no label? Now is your chance to plan a label, and come along a make the label with either cloth, paper or some leather. Check out the additions to the post at the bottom of the file
I will again host an open bindery Thursday evenings through May 2019.
