Victorian Bookbinders Guild

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

I will again host an open bindery Thursday evenings  through May 2019. 

This provides an opportunity for members to use the facilities, guillotine, board cutter, plough, standing presses, blocking press, and a variety of other tools. I might also be able to offer some words of advice as one amateur to others, and discuss over a cup of tea or coffee ideas and methods, and then try them out. 

All things being equal, I expect to be available 2,9,16,  23, and 30th roughly 7pm to 9pm.  Address available to those who register, and registration is essential, and closes on the monday prior.  Right toolbar has registration links.  Contact me for more information president@vbg.net.au
