    Printing is about doing.

    As much as we live in a digital world, more and more of us want work to with our hands and engage with machines in creative and meaningful ways. Our year-round calendar of classes, workshops and summer programs provide you with an opportunity to learn about the art and craft of printing, the book arts, and design. In addition, the Museum hosts The Printers Guild and the Houston Book Arts Group, which meet monthly to provide instruction and fellowship around their respective crafts.
