I’m really looking forward to giving my next talk, ‘An Introduction to Paper Conservation’ as it will not only be to a group of skilled bookbinders but also it’ll be within the beautiful 19th century surroundings of the Literary and Philosophical Society, (‘Lit and Phil’), the largest independent library outside of London, in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The talk will be delivered to the northern members of the Society of Bookbinders, a national charity who are devoted to training and education in the art and craft of bookbinding. Nationwide, the charity delivers excellent talks and workshops so if you are a keen bookbinder and haven’t yet checked them out, I recommend browsing their website to find your local group. Non-members are also allowed to attend talks so please do contact them to book your place and come along on Tuesday 23rd February at 6pm.
Hope to see you there!
