2017 Conference

Ann Harding Conference Centre

University of Canberra

25 – 27 March 2017

The conference promises to be inspiring, exciting and most enjoyable.   Binders from all places will be attending it, from Europe to the Americas and, of course, Australia and New Zealand.   This is an event for all binders: those who are just starting out; those who are a bit experienced; and the professional binder.

What will be happening?   There will be demonstrations of various binding techniques by Australian and overseas binders; information about leather – what is best for binders to achieve the results we all crave; ways to house our beautiful bindings; inspirations on endpapers; etc. etc.

There will be trade tables offering a variety of leathers, papers, tools and lots more that will become essentials for our collections.

This is an opportunity to learn new techniques and meet other bookbinders with a passion for binding.
