At Big River Bindery we don’t want to have all the fun, so we offer workshops in printing and binding so you can try it out yourself. See the listings below for both long and short-term classes you can take.

If you don’t see what you want here, check out our list of past workshops at

We’re excited to be planning to open workshops at the bindery staring in the Fall of 2022. Keep your eyes out for the schedule of bindery and invited instructors.

We’re taking a break over the summer but expect to start again in the fall with our online workshops. Our workshops offer the same content and feedback as the in-person workshops, but on an online format. The lessons are presented as recorded sessions with accompanying handouts, with a class area for questions and to share what you make. Live zoom office hours give you a chance to meet the other students and ask questions live with the instructor.

Online workshops to be offered in the future. Dates not yet set. View the course to sign up to be notified once a date has been set.
