wk_summerheaderSummer 2015 Workshops

We’re excited to present the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center summer 2015 class schedule for adults. There’s nothing like getting your hands in a vat of cool water and pulp for a papermaking class, playing with color creating monotypes, working on a new book structure or creating a poster with cool type on the Vandercook. No matter your interests, we’ve got something for you! Don’t forget to use our easy, online registration.
