As well as teaching bookmaking and making our own experimental bookworks we collaboratively curate a yearly international and experimental artists’ book exhibition. This is open to all. Our exhibitions are ‘not for profit’ – we do them because we love books.

There is no call for entries for 2019 as we are taking a break from curating.

Offset (2018) is our 14th exhibition!
