A Warm Welcome to the Western Region

Our area covers Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, parts of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, and South Wales.

Our aim is to encourage, support and promote the art of bookbinding, and we do this by being a very active region, providing members with opportunities to improve their skills and tap into their creative juices.

Registration and details for workshops and events from our regional programme, will be sent to all regional Members 6 weeks in advance, so make sure you write a note in your diary as a reminder for the ones you would like to attend.

If you would like to know more then please contact our regional Chairman or Secretary.
