At the Western New York Book Arts Center, we offer high-quality team building and professional development opportunities in our printmaking and bookmaking studios. We offer customized experiences for designers, teachers, and groups just curious to get their hands a little inky & try something new!
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.
