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

Fall 2022 Workshops


Our workshops offer the same content and feedback as in-person workshops, but on a hybrid online format. The lessons are presented as recorded sessions with accompanying handouts and 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.
