What's on at The Mill...




Join us as we launch our first exhibition of the New Year

on Saturday 13th January from 2pm - 4pm


The Wessex Guild of Bookbinders was formed with the aim of keeping alive and promoting the ancient craft of bookbinding.  The Guild's title was chosen to reflect the fact that members come from the wider Wessex region and they now meet regularly just a few miles north of Wimborne.

This exhibition at Walford Mill is an opportunity to celebrate the Guild's 50th anniversary and to look forward to the next 50 years of exceptional craftsmanship and artistry.  The centre-piece of the exhibition will be a display of bindings, one by each of the sixteen current members of the Guild, of a book of particular local interest.  Visitors will be able to see the various stages that take place when binding a book.  There will be displays of different types of bindings including single section, piano hinge, limp binding and Japanese stab bindings.

A workshop for both adults and children will take place during the exhibition and there will be free drop-in demonstrations every Saturday in the gallery at Walford Mill.

27th January - 'Sewing a Book'
