Open Studio

Print with us!

The lower-level 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 the Basics and Advanced screen print or letterpress classes, or another applicable workshop to gain access to the Studio. The flat rate includes: full day use of Book Arts equipment and access to Book Arts paper and ink.

If you’re in need of additional technical assistance our skilled team offers Guided Open Studio options for Book Arts members.
