Licentiates are elected upon submission of work which is deemed to display a potential in design and technique likely to commend them as candidates for election to Fellowship within five years. During this period two mentors are assigned, and tutorials and consultations made available. Their work may also be shown in the society’s exhibitions. The society is constantly seeking new talent, and promising bookbinders are encouraged to apply first for Licentiateship and then for Fellowship.
Promising bookbinders are encouraged to apply for Licentiateship. These aspirant members benefit from a five-year period of guidance and encouragement from our vastly experienced Fellows to attain the highest standards. Designer Bookbinders nurtures Licentiates by providing a regular series of tutorials and consultations.
