We run courses in artists’ books and related processes with visiting experts and in-house staff. All of our CPD book arts courses for 2022 can be viewed and booked online here.

In 2020, due to Covid, we replaced our Book and Print Summer Institute with a free online festival. You can watch the talks from the festival online here.
