Artist Memberships


An Artist Membership at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center gives professional artists access to our studios and equipment.

Artist Members receive these benefits:

  • Access to both papermaking and printmaking equipment (once “licensed” on the equipment by a licensing instructor).
  • Designated storage for materials
  • Full access to the studio (with awareness of times for scheduled workshops, activities and events).

Current rates are:

  • $75 per month
  • $65 per month with a 3 month contract
  • $50 per month with a 6 month contract

Plus “licensing” to insure proper use of the studio:

Licensing can be achieved through taking a class at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center or by private appointment at a fee of $40 per hour. Artist members are expected to be able to work independently. Additional instruction and technical assistance will be accessed at $40 per hour if necessary.
