About the Guild

No face to face, instead check out the Blog for ideas that you can do at your bench and read about members projects in 2020….

The Canberra Craft Bookbinders’ Guild has members from all around Canberra and the ACT region. A few from further outwards in NSW, Qld  and SA . Members meet every two months, with newsletter  ‘Raised Bands’ published every two months.

The Guild objectives are:

To promote and exhibit the art of the hand-bound book.
To maintain the traditional craft bookbinding skills.
To seek to exert a progressive influence on the design and technique of bookbinding.

We have a variety of interests within the Guild, from traditional craft bookbinding skills through to alternative book arts experimentation. Activities and meetings are organised to engage with many of these interests.

Meetings, Drop-in Saturdays and workshops – cancelled until further notice

Regular meetings are held at 7:30pm at the Hughes Community Centre, Wisdom St, Hughes. Visitors are most welcome. For more detailed directions, please go here.

Next meeting TBA.

For a complete schedule of 2020 meeting activities go to the events page.

The Guild conducts and hosts workshops for members and the public.
