Promoting the idea of the book in all of its varied forms and mediums is central to SFCB’s mission. Our in-person and online events provide food for thought for those interested in all aspects of artists’ books, the visible word, printing in its many forms, and related arts.

SFCB hosts a wide range of events which are free and open to the public. One-off events such as our visiting instructor BOOK TALKS or artist panel discussions often focus on exhibitions, collaborations with other organizations, or studio process. In early 2020, SFCB began hosting online events, reaching a new audience of printers, bookbinders, and artist bookmakers worldwide.

We would love to see you at one of our upcoming in-person or online events! If you’d like to help us bring community events to the public, please visit our volunteer FAQ page.
