The Edinburgh Book Festival is on from the 13th to 30th of August –

Our morning meetings on the first and third Wednesday of the month will continue online, pop in from 10:30 and bind some artists’ books or fold some ‘zines along with us while catching up on book goings on – 3rd and 17th of August. We will also meet online the evening of the 10th (2nd Wednesday) from 17:30 as the Art Library is shut on that evening.

We will hold the virtual meetings at the regular meetup time – just email or DM us on instagram with your Skype username and we will add you to the group.


Please join us in person! at the library for our evening meeting on the fourth Wednesday – 24th of August, 17:30 to 19:30.

Art & Design Library, Central, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.

For our in person meetings you can work on any projects you bring, but if you are new to book making and want to bind along with others this months theme will be envelopes. Please bring some loose sheets of paper (cartridge or even pages from an old magazine will work, some thin card will also give good results), a pair of scissors, needle, bookbinding thread (or any strong thread), glue stick, pencil.
