In conjunction with Designer Bookbinders the Society organises an annual series of weekend workshops. These workshops offer structured, intensive learning from established teachers and are designed to stress the ‘hands-on’ approach where students complete a structure or technique following demonstrations from the teacher. The size of each workshop is limited to allow students to benefit from individual attention.
SoB/DB 2020/2021 season Joint Workshops. Final UPDATE
It is with great reluctance that we have decided to cancel the 20/21 season of Joint Workshops. As you will be aware Government guidelines suggest that only after 21 June will more than six people be allowed to gather together indoors. All our planned sessions are before this date. We aim to re-establish the whole programme of six workshops during the 21/22 season.
We will work to see if it will be possible to run the three workshops already twice postponed from 2019 over this coming summer. For clarity we refer to Contemporary Paper Conservation Binding with Kathy Abbott, Conservation Enclosures with Anne-Marie Miller and Paper Cut Drum-Leaf Artists’ Book with Kip Perdue and Mark Cochram. Dates and venues will follow as soon as possible.
A final plea – if anyone who has paid for a workshop and has, or has not, advised me they are due a refund but has not yet been refunded, would you please contact me asap. We shall start afresh for the next season with costs of £185.00 for DB/SoB members and £205.00 for non-members.
Stay safe and let us hope for a successful next season.
