The Dartmouth College Library Book Arts Workshop is open to Dartmouth College students and other members of the Dartmouth community. There is no fee to use the Workshop during open studio times or to attend classes. The Workshop is open every term and our instructors can provide support to all levels of experience.
We offer instruction on setting metal and wood type; printing with a variety of presses dating from the nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century; working with contemporary letterpress and printmaking methods that incorporate digital and experimental techniques.
We also offer instruction on bookbinding, from traditional sewn and glued books to less traditional origami based folded books - all designed to get students thinking about the form of the book and the myriad of possibilities for content.
As well as classes, we offer studio times when an instructor is available for individual instruction and assistance.
