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 https://bigriverbindery.com/pastworkshops/
Winter / Spring 2022 Workshops
Do to concerns of everyone’s safety, in-person workshops at the bindery have been canceled. We look forward to having students back in the shop as soon as possible.
Andrew will be teaching in-person in 2022 at the John C Campbell Folk School, see their offerings at https://www.folkschool.org/
We’re are still teaching, but at a distance. Our workshops offer the same content and feedback, 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.
