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.

Gold Tooling with Doug Mitchell

Moorland Village Hall,, Wheddon Cross

This is a FREE two day workshop courtesy of the national Education and Training Committee which is experimenting with one workshop a year per region.  We choose the subject, the Committee choose the tutor.  Many members ask for help with gold tooling so now is your chance.  The workshop will cover all aspects of gold tooling both on foil and gold leaf including uses, equipment and the setting up of your own tools.  All very informal with lots of practising.
