Binding & Boxmaking

In an effort to support social distancing and to continue to spark the artistic impulse in all of us, MCBA is offering live, virtual workshops on a variety of topics, suitable for all skill levels. Art and meaningful connection are more important now than ever! With the help of an online platform, MCBA’s teaching artists are eager to connect with you wherever you are. Workshops are interactive and not recorded.

Virtual workshops are eligible for credit toward MCBA’s Certificate programs. Enrollees receive a 20% discount on tuition while registration is open. MCBA members receive a 10% discount on tuition.

Have questions? This PDF contains a detailed list of FAQs.  If you are a teaching artist, you can propose a virtual workshop here.


Add your name to a wait list if a workshop you’d like to take is full. You’ll be contacted if another section of the workshop is scheduled.
