About Virtual Workshops


How will I access the workshop?

Access the workshop online anywhere you have a strong Wi-Fi or data connection. Your personal living space is a great place to spread out with your device and materials needed for your workshop. Step-by-step instructions for accessing the workshop online will be sent to you after you register for the workshop.

How do I know what materials and tools are needed for the workshop?

Materials are listed with workshop descriptions online. Most materials can be sourced in your homes, along with emails for teaching artists who you may contact with questions about materials. You may also contact MCBA staff if you have questions regarding the materials, please email mcba@mnbookarts.org with Virtual Workshop Materials in the subject line.

What level of interaction is involved in the workshop?

MCBA’s virtual workshops are live. We encourage participants to share video and audio and participate in the workshop similarly as they do for in-person workshops: ask questions, connect with other participants. If you prefer, you’re also welcome to work without a camera.

Will I need to download any software?

You won’t need to download any software, but step-by-step instructions for accessing the workshop online will be sent to you after you register for the workshop.

I have a question about registration, cancellation, or something else. Where can I find answers?

In most cases, our comprehensive FAQ guide for studio workshop participants still applies to virtual workshops. (Simply ignore anything directly pertaining to our brick-and-mortar space.)

Is there any other way I can support Minnesota Center for Book Arts?

Yes! If you are interested in helping us keep our community going during these uncertain times, become a member, make a donation, or buy a gift certificate for a future workshop. Your support, in any amount, helps us fulfill our mission, and brings you more virtual programming now–and in-person programming in the future.
