There’s a whole lot of art being made at MCBA -- and you can easily be a part of it, whether you've never held a bonefolder before or you're a seasoned expert looking to expand your binding or printing repertoire. MCBA teaches workshops for all ages and abilities, for individuals as well as school and community groups.
Youth Daycamps and Workshops
Workshops and Field Trips for Classrooms
Standard workshops are held both in the MCBA studios and in schools, libraries and community centers. Working in partnership with teachers, standard youth workshops teach children how to make handmade paper, bind a book, marble paper, or print on a real printing press. During hands-on workshops in MCBA's studios or in schools, students demonstrate classroom knowledge through new experiences.
MCBA also collaborates with teachers and staff of all grade levels and age groups to plan comprehensive, custom-designed book arts residencies. Custom workshops allow teachers to fully integrate the visual and literary excitement of the book arts into their curriculum goals. MCBA artist-instructors work with K-12 students and teachers to make individual and/or collaborative books, anywhere from a single two-hour session to a week-long (or longer!) residency. Custom youth workshops are closely tailored to curriculum; as a result, the cost of a residency is higher than a standard youth workshop.
MCBA prints a newsletter and workshop schedule three times a year, as well as an annual Youth Workshops catalog for teachers. To have a copy mailed to you, e-mail MCBA or call 612 215 2520.
