Wessex Guild of Bookbinders

Bookbinders image

The Wessex Guild of Bookbinders was formed in 1968 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a range of events and exhibitions throughout the county.


The aim of the Guild is to keep alive and promote the craft of bookbinding and cherish and care for books on a non-commercial basis. Some members undertake private commissions.


The Guild is based in Holt Heath near Wimborne and is the only fully-equipped amateur bookbindery in the South West.


The Guild is a member of the Society of Bookbinders.
