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

The morning meeting on the first Wednesday of the month will be 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 of December.

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 Wednesday of the month, the 14th of December, drop in between 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 Decembers theme is “journals and diaries”.

We will be taking a festive break over the holidays – our regular meeting schedule will start again in 2023 – 4th of January – online, and from the 11th of January – in person.

We hope you all have a lovely seasonal break and Happy New Year when it comes!

If you have any spare time in December it is always worth checking out the Byopia Press Advent Calendar which has something delightful to make each day.

  1. Thanks for the mention!
    Just a note: I think you might want to correct a link in the post — the Pattern:Books header does not link to the exhibition.
