Promoting and exhibiting the art of hand-bound books


Welcome to the West Australian Craft Bookbinders Guild.  We have completely redesigned our site for 2023, and made it simpler to find information, and much easier to register for our very popular courses.

Courses are held once per month for most months of the year, with a wide range of techniques available, targeted at all skill levels from beginners through to advanced and everything in between.


The Guild meets once per month in the suburb of Como, Perth, Western Australia, and is dedicated to advancing bookbinding in Western Australia. We offer advice, talks and demonstrations at our monthly meetings, as well as providing opportunities to show new works and techniques.


If you are interested in learning how to make your own books, or to repair your own books, we offer courses on a regular basis. Check out Events for the dates of our meetings and other events that we participate in, and Courses for all the details of our courses and when they are held.


Head to the Courses page for upcoming learning opportunities as we head into Spring 2022. Our 2023 courses are now available, and the schedule will continue to be expanded over the next few months. We will have a full complement of courses for 2023.


Annual membership fees are applicable from July each year.


Individual membership $50.00
Family membership $75.00


The best and easiest way to become a member is attend one of our meetings, held on the last Monday of each month, and bring along your fees. We can sign you up immediately. See our Events page for a complete calendar of meetings, together with what demonstrations or talks will be held..

A discount for your fee may apply if you join in the last three months of the membership year, applicable to the first year only.
