Book Arts for the Online


Book in the Round

One of the very few silver linings to a worldwide pandemic is that many arts organizations moved their workshops and presentations online. This means you could watch a studio tour in San Francisco, bind a book in Santa Fe and learn pop-ups in Kalamazoo, all without leaving your house. There are many free and pay-what-you-can events in addition to one-day and multi-day paid workshops. The hardest part may be finding out about them, so this posting is a first attempt to collect a bunch together for you. And if you have heard of some other book arts center with online offerings, send the details to us here at admin@bookartsguild.org and we'll add it to the list. (List is alphabetic after the first three local groups.)
