We’ll be back at the Barbican in July as part of Make! Summer Workshops.

Library

Our new reference library in part funded by our successful Kickstarter campaign last year. It’s an ongoing project – growing and cataloguing the collection – and we hope to eventually make it accessible to the public. At the moment the collection of artist books, and reference books on printing, bookbinding, graphic design, etc. are accessible to members, Studio Pass holders, and workshop participants. Thanks to everyone who supported our campaign!
