Volunteers are essential to the operation of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild as we are a volunteer-run arts organization.

There are several ways are to volunteer:

- with a local chapter
- as a chapter leader
- on a national committee e.g. education, magazine, social media
- on the board of directors

Our volunteers have discovered many benefits:

- friendships
- supporting a growing community
- shared passion for book arts
- contributing art-adjacent or technical skills
- leadership development.

Volunteer Recognition

Barbara Trott discovered the world of bookbinding while studying printmaking at OCAD University. Linking sewing, books, and making lots of different things, CBBAG involvement provides her with a connection to both creativity and community.

Barbara is an avid class-taker and received her CBBAG Certificate of Completion in 2010. Along the way she has been fortunate to have taken courses with Mercedes Cirfi Watson, Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Dan Mezza, Don Taylor, Hedi Kyle, Renata Mesmer, and so many more!

Barbara likes to help out a bit and has done so for CBBAG at numerous Grimbsy Wayzgeese, Toronto Word On The Street, weekly Open Studio (way back on Atlantic Avenue in Liberty Village!), and Book Arts/arte du livre Canada mail-outs.

Barbara joined the CBBAG board in 2010 and since 2014 enjoyed her role as treasurer, retiring from the position as of the 2021 AGM.
