Teach at Minnesota Center for Book Arts

Minnesota Center for Book Arts invites teaching artists who practice letterpress printing, papermaking, paper decoration, bookbinding, screen printing, design, and related arts to submit proposals for adult workshops.

We are always looking for new, inventive, and diverse proposals for workshops. Workshops are selected based on current programmatic needs, while seeking to cover a variety of core book-related processes for a range of learners from beginner to seasoned practitioner.

MCBA offers classes in three sessions each year: Winter/Spring (January-April), Summer (May-August), and Fall (September-December). We accept proposals three times a year with deadlines for each session occuring about four months prior to the start of the session. The deadline to submit workshop proposals for fall 2019 is June 17th.
