Book Arts In Edinburgh – What’s On – September 2022

Our theme this month is books from recycled materials – so gather up the junk mail, last years calendar and those cereal boxes.

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 – 7th and 21st of September.

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 second and fourth Wednesdays – 14th and 28th of September, 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 recycling. Please bring some collected paper and card to recycle into books – packaging, junk mail, magazines, calendars, etc. – , a pair of scissors, needle, bookbinding thread (or any strong thread), glue stick, pencil.
