Group Tours and Private Workshops


MCBA offers private group tours in which your class or organization can learn about the history of MCBA, the programs offered here, and a bit about the book arts field in general. While touring our studios, participants will learn about the traditional book-related practices such as papermaking, letterpress printing and bookbinding.

We also offer custom workshops for groups and organizations. Workshop topics are hands-on; options include letterpress printing, binding a book, and much more. For individuals with a desire to learn a specific skill or need guidance on a particular project, tutorials are available (see our Studio Rental page).

Fees for group tours and custom workshops vary by the size of the group and content of the tour or activity. For more information or to schedule your group tour, contact Anna Bredeson, Artist and Adult Programs Director, at
