About the MCBA Artist Co-op

The MCBA Artist Cooperative is a welcoming community of artists dedicated to the book arts. Co-op membership is open to artists with demonstrated interest in papermaking, binding, letterpress, relief printmaking and/or screenprinting; membership offers extended access to a wide range of equipment in MCBA’s studios. The Co-op is a great environment in which to receive feedback on work in progress, get help troubleshooting a project, spark new collaborations and enjoy fellowship. Co-op members can also take part in exhibition opportunities, skill-sharing workshops, class tuition discounts and more.
