Event Info

Due to COVID-19, Center for Book Arts will be open to the public at a limited capacity. Participants must wear a mask at all times during their studio rental training course.

The time at which you come in for your studio rental training course on a Friday or a Saturday is flexible. If you are unable to come in at the scheduled time, please email to find a time that works for you and the instructor.

This class is required for anyone who wishes to rent time in our printshop and bindery. Students will learn:

  • how to use our guillotine, board shears, and presses safely
  • how to register for time in the studio and on press
  • new studio policies
  • clean up procedures
  • basic press maintenance

After completing this hour and a half-long course, a renter can sign up for supervised printing and can reserve time in the bindery. All renters are required to print with supervision until they receive verbal consent by supervisor that they are able to print unsupervised. Our supervised printing hours are currently facilitated by artist Keith Graham on Sundays, 5:30-8:30pm.

Registration is closed. Return to all Classes.
