We’re gearing up for the fall term at Dartmouth, which means the Book Arts Program will soon be open again. This program is housed in the library and managed by Preservation Services, and it is one of the best hidden gems on campus. There’s a letterpress studio and a bindery studio, each of which offers workshops and open studio time. The best part is, the workshops and studios are free to use by anyone…students, faculty, staff, and we also welcome community members not affiliated with the College.
But as awesome as the Book Arts Program is, we thought it could get even better. So we’re introducing some new developments this fall which we'll be highlighting in the blog over the next few weeks. We'll kick things off today with the introduction of a brand-new online registration system for our workshops.
Registration for bindery workshops, letterpress orientation sessions, and letterpress open studio sessions will now be done through our events page on the EventBrite website. In addition to making our lives a little easier, this system offers a few great new features such as:
- Anyone can follow our RSS event feed to learn about new workshops as soon as they’re posted.
- You can view all of our upcoming events and register for them in one place.
- All of our event pages have social media links, so you can email, tweet, or like our events to share them with your friends!
As with all of the Book Arts Program workshops, although these are open to the general public, priority is given to Dartmouth students. Non-students will be able to register for any of the workshops one week before they take place, assuming there are still seats available.
We think this registration system will be a great improvement for the already-wonderful Book Arts Program, and we hope you do too! If you have any questions about registration, feel free to contact us. Stay tuned for more information about the rest of the upcoming changes to the Program!
