These tours feature visits to several of Minneapolis' outstanding artists' collaboratives, with the opportunity for tour participants to engage in 'hands-on' activities under the guidance of skilled practitioners.  These tours are scheduled so that conference attendees may participate in visits to all three destinations, or any combination thereof.

MINNESOTA CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS  $25, maximum 24 participants  

Please see our Conference Blog for specific information regarding transportation arrangements.

Our guided visit offers an introduction to the book arts and artists' books, including a demonstration of the traditional crafts of papermaking, letterpress printing, and bookbinding, as well as a look at contemporary book making as an art form.  The MCBA includes an exhibition gallery and a shop selling artists' books and bookmaking supplies. [NOTE:  A more extensive visit to MCBA is also offered on Monday, March 28, 2011 from 9:00 AM - Noon]
