Open Studio

Print with us!

The studio at the Western New York Book Arts Center is the only community printshop of its kind in WNY! Home to a family of antique letterpresses, a vast collection of vintage wood and metal type, screen printing equipment and more, the Book Arts studio serves as a collaborative hub providing resources to our community of print and book artists.

Our studio is available for use by members through open studio sessions, by appointment. To ensure proper stewardship of equipment and materials, members must take our Letterpress Basics Workshop and/or our Screen Print Basics Workshop within one calendar year to gain access to the Studio. If more time has passed since your last Open Studio or Basics workshop, “Refresher” Open Studios are available!

Open Studio includes a full day use of Book Arts equipment and access to our ink and paper collection.
Letterpress or Screen Print Open Studio: $35
Refresher Open Studio: $75 (includes a staff member on-hand throughout the day for a refresh of printing procedures and a press check)
