What we'll do
If you would like to check out what the Queensland Bookbinders Guild do, and whether you'd be interested in joining, then come along to their next free Open Door Day on Sunday 25th August 2019, anytime between 9am and 12 noon, at their home-base in the BVAC Arts Hub, Wellers Hill.
If you're already a member of the QBG (or would like to consider becoming one), this upcoming Open Door Day is a wonderful opportunity to access the QBG shop, equipment and senior members' expertise.
The Queensland Bookbinders Guild sells a wide range of bookcloths, papers, thread, tools, and much more. A lot of these materials/tools are otherwise difficult to find in Australia, as the QBG import them for the benefit of its members. Throughout the morning, the QBG's shop will be open for browsing if you were looking to buy materials or supplies for your bookbinding projects (please note: you must be a QBG member to purchase from the shop, or to use the Guild's library).
Bookbinding demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day, with a number of QBG members working on their own bookbinding projects and works-in-progress. Refreshments and tea/coffee are offered also.
Gold coin donation appreciated.
