Workshops

Workshops at the Western New York Book Arts Center are a fun way to learn a new technique or further develop your skill set as an artist.  Our experienced instructors work hard preparing quality, informative, and fun projects for their students. Please note, workshops are geared toward all different skill levels, and all participants are welcome. Check the schedule below, and if you’re interested, fill out the registration form to reserve your spot and submit your payment!
