Regions  |  Scotland

 

The Scotland region was founded in the early 1980s and has members spread over the Scottish mainland & the islands. Meetings are held in various places so that the inevitable travelling is reduced as far as possible. Members meet every two months or thereabouts and have a social gathering at Christmas. The AGM is generally held in Edinburgh during February. Anyone with an interest in bookbinding is most welcome to join, and we are delighted to have enquiries from people new to bookbinding.

All workshops are held on a Saturday and run from 11.00-4.00pm (break where appropriate for lunch).

There is no charge for members attending workshops. However, in some cases there may be a fee to cover the cost of materials.

If you would like more information about any of these events, contact Alison Hay, Scotland Region chairman.
