Victorian Bookbinders Guild

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

Welcome to 2019. Our first meeting was an enjoyable time. Weather held up, a little breezy bit comfortable  Members plus visitors made 16 all up, a great number with a couple of  young students really enjoying the creativity of the dye, paper, messy medium mix.

Lots of delighted sounds from all ages as the colours float and flow, and sometimes make patterns close to what we imagine. I think if we had a marbling workshop each month we might actually get to the place of consistency. Thanks to Peter Lewis who prepared all the materials, and who travelled from near Benalla to present the evening, and to Tim and others who provided the barbeque, salads, drinks and treats. 

The committee meeting was also a good time, its always a busy meeting, setting the agenda for the year and getting the numerous events all in line. Check the events bar on the right and remember with all events its easy on us if you register.  Dont hesitate to contact me for more information  president@vbg.net.au    Jim
