The East Midland region runs several workshops every year in addition to a varied programme of visiting speakers and demonstrators. The workshops are designed to address basic training needs and to introduce elements of design, finishing and decoration. We also have outings to specific venues (libraries, archives, etc.). Talks and demonstrations are free for members and £5 for non-members, £2.50 for students and under 18s. Workshop costs are announced separately.
Meetings take place at various venues around Derby, Nottingham and Leicester.
The Branch also contributes to the John Hopkins Memorial Library, maintained by the Leicester Bookbinding Group. Under arrangements made with the LBG members of the Branch can borrow books from the Library, subject to a small administration fee.
