We run courses in artists’ books and related processes with visiting experts and in-house staff. All of our CPD book arts courses are listed on these pages and also feature in the Book Arts Newsletter.

Our Summer Book Arts Institute runs each year from July-August. We have classes from one-day Broadside Ballads, to Hybrid Printmaking, Book Structures with Guy Begbie, and Botanical Printmaking in the park with Bristol Print Collective.
