Membership

Our studio members play a vital part in our mission to help build a community of artists and designers that share ideas and learn from one another to grow their individual practices.

Open Access

If you have previously taken workshops or are otherwise qualified, Membership or a Studio Pass is a way to work independently, with occasional guidance, on your own projects using the unique facilities at the London Centre for Book Arts. Please get in touch to find out if Monthly or Weekend Membership or a Studio Pass is right for you, or to arrange a tour of the facilities with a studio manager.
