The facilities that the guild have makes for a smooth running creative space, there is a large collection of type, they have their 8 x 5 Adana and the building is situated in an historic landscape.
Hill End Press conducted a workshop where the 6 students involved created an ABC book using an 8 x 5 Adana press and the high speed No 2. All the students embraced letterpress with innovative type designs using 3 colours, collage, drawing and monoprints.
By the end of the two day workshop students came away very happy and with a signed edition of each others work which completed a full set of the ABC.
For all of us involved it really was a special two days of productivity.
The NSW Bookbinders Guild offers terrific workshops on the many ways to professionally bind a book and all the information for workshops can be seen on http://nswbookbinders.blogspot.com.au/
