Welcome!

We're a group of book artists based in the English-Welsh border region of the United Kingdom, an area known as the Marches. Formed in 2009, our group comprises makers at every level, from those just discovering the joys of book arts to professional artists renowned for their artist's books. We come from, and share our skills in, a variety of disciplines such as textiles, 3D, paper sculpture, calligraphy, graphic design and printmaking.

 

With the covid-19 outbreak we’ve had to adapt to how we can keep in contact, share our art and discuss how our creative processes are affected by current circumstances. Until we can resume our monthly face-to-face meetings, we’re using Zoom, WhatsApp and Facebook groups to keep in touch with each other, and we also have our public pages on Facebook and Instagram.

 

We’re not sure when we’ll be meeting again in person but programme updates will be published here. If you're interested and inspired by book arts, why not get in touch to find out more?
