Workshops

North Branch Projects offers a variety of bookbinding workshops at locations, mostly throughout the Chicagoland area. Several schools, community organizations, cultural institutions, corporations, and individuals' homes and studios host opportunities to learn about the book arts.

We welcome invitations from other organizations as well as private parties and work with students from preschool age to seniors. Workshops run from one to three hours. Rates vary depending on number of participants, type of workshop activity, and specific needs of the event host.
