Meeting again 9th March 2021
This month we have four different activities for people with different bookbinding interests.
Our Artist books group is on Tuesday 9th March at BVAC from 1.00 until 3.00pm
(sorry, I gave the wrong times for last month’s meeting). This is a very active and vibrant group with a very varied programme for the year. If you are interested in attending I suggest that you contact the group’s coordinator Sandy Johnson so that we are prepared for everyone who comes. All Guild members are welcome to join the group. Sandy Johnson’s email is email@example.com
Our next regular meeting is the Open Day, on Sunday 14th March (9.00am – 12.00 noon)
at the usual BVAC premises. Please come to buy materials, borrow books, talk to other members and to see our new and well equipped bindery. This is also the last date for submitting entries to the 2021 Competition, which is being judged by Fred and Gundi Pohlmann and will be announced at the April 14th
AGM. Please see the notice below about electronic payment from Andrew Lee who is in charge of the shop and sales. Every entry must include an Entry Form which you will find on the website (https://qbg.org.au/presidentqbg-org-au/
) or attached.
We have two one-day courses running this month
. On Saturday 27th March we are running a Solander Box course (this is intended for those who completed this week’s Introduction to Bookbinding course,
but there might be last minute vacancies). Then on Sunday 28th March we are running another of the very popular Book Repair
courses, run by Robin Tait, an esteemed professional paper conservator based near Toowoomba. It will focus on paper repairs, tears and re-attaching loose pages, and some removal of adhesive tape. Both of these courses are listed on our website (https://qbg.org.au/courses-and-workshops/
) and application can be made via the website. You may wish to contact our Courses convenor, Marilyn George, on firstname.lastname@example.org
to confirm availability and any prerequisites and requirements.
27 March: Repair Course with Robin Tait.
28 March: Solander Box-course for Feb course participants.
8/9 May: Intermediate course
(2 day course)
