Our Club

The Southern Bookcrafts Club exists to develop the craft of bookbinding and book restoration in our area. We have a dedicated bindery in Winchester for use by bookbinders individually, or in groups for training sessions.
We are privileged in that Maureen Duke, past President of The Society of Bookbinders, is our President.

The Club welcomes new members and also offers a series of training days in bookbinding techniques for those with some bookbinding experience already.
Maureen leads a team of specialist tutors for these.

In addition we run training sessions for those with no, or limited, experience.

This is the new (April 2014) website for SBC. Previously the site was hosted by Hantsweb (Hampshire County Council) to whom we express our appreciation for their support over many years.
