Please join us in-person at the library for our evening meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month – all welcome – drop in between 17:30 to 19:30 (free). Just look for the reserved tables or ask the librarians to point us out. Work on your own projects or ask for help and advice while we chat about books, paper and design.

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

  • January 10th and 24th
  • February 14th and 28th
  • March 13th and 27th

The morning meetings continue online and are on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, pop in from 10:30 and bind some artists’ books or fold some ‘zines along with us while catching up on book goings on.

Just email or DM us on instagram with your Skype username and we will add you to the group. We use Skype as it has persistent chat – so even if you miss the meeting you can still see photos and interesting links people have added over the week.
