Having moved to larger premises in late-2013 the Southern Bookcrafts Club has now expanded to about 20 Full active members. There is space in the bindery to support this number and more, and new members are very welcome.

Full membership is £360 per annum (comparable with three terms at a single local authority evening class). Membership can be paid on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis - as individual members wish.

We welcome visitors, who are able to assess the benefits of joining. There is a discretionary (Introductory) membership at a lower subscription rate to enable those new to bookbinding to give it a try and see if it is a craft they would like to pursue.

Feel free to come by on a Friday morning to meet us. If possible contact our Club Secretary beforehand to let us know you are coming.


All full members of Southern Bookcrafts Club become 24/7
keyholders to the bindery and have access to
a large inventory of standing and hand tools and materials.

There is a free interchange of ex
and ideas beween members, many of whom meet regularly on Friday mornings and otherwise as they choose.
