Information for Faculty

The Book Arts Workshop studios are available to faculty for curricular support. Classes such as History of the Book, Old & New Media, and Book Arts Studio Seminar have met in the studios with workshop instructors to work on projects of varying length: one – two session projects, half term projects, or for the entire term. If you would like to use the workshop for a classroom assignment please contact Barb Sagraves as early as possible, preferably in the term before the anticipated event. This will allow you to be matched with a studio instructor to assist you in designing the exercise, confirming schedules, and obtaining any necessary supplies.

We always welcome the use of the workshop by individual students to complete coursework. If you have students interested in taking advantage of the workshop for a project, the following points are helpful to keep in mind:

  • Due to limited space and staffing the Book Arts Workshop uses an on-line signup system for all letterpress and bindery studio sessions. We require an orientation session before working in the letterpress studio. All of these sessions fill up quickly and have waiting lists; because of this it is generally not possible for instructors to work with students on a drop-in basis. We will try, when possible to add students to full sessions but they need to contact Barb Sagraves to make special arrangements.
  • If you suspect you have students that will need to use the studio space please urge them to sign up early. The schedule is listed on the Book Arts Program web pages, D2U, and the Dartmouth-Book-Arts listserv.
