Donate what you can to help support the London Centre for Book Arts.

The London Centre for Book Arts is a small artist-run organisation with no outside funding. We are, and have been, an entirely self-sustaining organisation. This means that for the past seven years, we have been able to support all of the work that we do through workshop ticket sales, membership, and sales through our online shop.

In this unprecedented situation that we (along with other artists, small organisations and businesses) find ourselves in, we’re asking for your support. All funds raised will go towards supporting our small but dedicated community and ensuring that we can weather the storm and plan for the future.

(In the coming months you can be sure that we will be busy creating something unique in the studio to send out as thank you gifts!)
