Victorian Bookbinders Guild

For all interested in the Art, Craft and Practice of Bookbinding                                             

I will be opening my bindery on wednesday Thursday evenings  into allow Guild members another option for  their projects. The Bindery is small, allowing only 6 people plus myself if we want to do serious work.  However happy to have others drop in and see the facilities.

Check this page regularly, I will usually open for the 4 nights in the month, and it will vary which months and days. So watch out and register for days which suit,.

 I have several presses, guillotine, plough, board cutter,  gold blocking, gold tooling, and finishing  presses, and the bits and pieces to make it all operate as a bindery.

You are welcome to visit. However registration is essential. Its up in the Dandenongs, the address will be included in the registration reply. 

Payment is part to offset the costs of the bindery, part to grow the fund of the Guild to allow us oneday to have a permanent bindery home. $20.00 plus any materials used. Payment on the night.

Registration is essential  Register here
