Group & Club Outings

Group workshops for homeschool pods, scouts, birthday parties, clubs & more

Engage in hands-on learning & explore the possibilities of what books & prints can be in our in-person & virtual group workshops. Participants work step-by-step with specialty tools to create their own unique art pieces, from origami and hand-stirtched books to hand-printed posters and t-shirts. At the end of select workshops, participants keep their tools, encouraging creative curiosity even after the class is over.

Join us for a virtual experience via Zoom, or opt for an in-person experience for a tour of our accessible galleries, shop of handmade artists’ goods, and our community letterpress and screen print studios.

Please note, due to COVID regulations, our in-person capacity is limited to 9 workshop participants. View our group workshop offerings below, and contact us with any specifics or questions…we’re excited to make art with you! PRIVATE GROUP WORKSHOP PAYMENT & REFUND POLICY

Team Building

Get creative with your team.

We offer letterpress, screen printing or bookbinding workshops where teams learn the history and importance of the medium, and work with our collection of vintage type and presses, screens and inks, or speciality bookmaking paper and tools to create truly unique, hand crafted pieces. These workshops stress both individual and collective creativity while focusing on teamwork to connect old-school technology, history and art to modern making. 

Team Building workshops are built around what your team wants to create. Work in our studio for a few hours to print unique, handset posters, or spend an hour or two screen printing custom t-shirts your team can wear proudly! Whatever you create here at Book Arts, your team is sure to leave with some ink on their fingers & a feeling that you’ve created something great, together.

Every visit also includes a tour of our incredible studios, art gallery, and a little retail therapy in our shop stocked with work by local artists. Your team will be visiting a unique cultural destination in WNY, sure to be the talk at the water-cooler all month.
