Who We Are

The Leicester Bookbinding Group is a not for profit association of bookbinders. Our aims are to promote education and training in the craft of book binding and book conservation.

What We Do

We run regular bookbinding sessions at Tudor Bookbinders in Wigston, Leicester. The sessions run from 13:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs on Tuesday for a 10 week term. There are four terms a year.

Membership

Membership of the group is open to anyone who wants to come along and take part. Our members' skill range from complete novices to fully qualified bookbinders.

A number of our members are also members of the Society of Bookbinders. However, membership of the SoB is not required to join the LBG.

For information on the Midlands Region of the Society of Bookbinders go to their website:

Supporting Bookbinders

This includes the use of blocking presses and laying presses. Also members get to use a range of basic supplies

that we carry in stock.
