Get Your Hands Dirty At The Minnesota Center For Book Arts

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – This week we are offering a look at some unique art experiences across the Twin Cities metro.

Our latest adventure encourages you to get your hands dirty with some printmaking through the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis, which offers a full slate of classes. Sara Parr, a program director at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, said they offer classes for artists of any age from school children to adults.

Parr said their specialty is the traditional book arts, which includes hand paper-making, hand book binding and letter-press printing. On The WCCO This Morning show Wednesday, Edward Moody tried his hand at making a journal from scratch.

They also have a happy hour on the first Friday of the month called “Dirty Works,” where they host a happy hour followed by a two-hour class.
