I am an academic but have a yearning to take up bookbinding which was the
activity I enjoyed most at boarding school but was not allowed to pursue
(not an 'academic' subject). I got the address of this list from the Web
where I found information about interesting courses, mostly in the USA.
Right now, I am unable to travel for extended periods, so how do I get
started here in Western Australia? Is it possible to do apprenticeships -
I'm a little tired of formal study in institutions? At this stage, I'd
like to find a way to learn bookbinding whilst not giving up my current
work until I have acqured some skill. But if necessary I'm ready to jump!
I'd welcome suggestions, advice, contacts.
