Artist Co-op

About the MCBA Artist Co-op

MCBA’s Artist Cooperative is a community of artists dedicated to book arts. Co-op membership is open to artists with demonstrated interest in papermaking, bookbinding, letterpress printing, screen printing, or related arts. Membership offers 24/7 access to a wide range of equipment in MCBA’s studios. Additional benefits include exhibition opportunities, class tuition discounts, peer support, and more.

Co-op membership dues are $165/month, with a minimum six month commitment. Volunteer opportunities are available to reduce dues to as low as $110 per month. A limited number of short-term memberships (three to five month commitment) may be available, based on studio capacity. Short-term membership dues are $195 per month. Short-term membership dues may not be reduced by volunteering.
