The Bindery is a membership space for writers, book artists, printers, and other related creative fields. We provide a flexible array of options and pricing including coworking, private studios, and a book arts makerspace full of tools and equipment.
We're a friendly community of diverse, curious, thoughtful workers: we'd love to add you to the synergy in our building. Come join us!
Our unique, sunny, community workspace is geared toward creatives in fields related to writing and other publishing practice including editors, designers, illustrators, educators, etc.
Sick of working from home but don't want the chaos of a coffee shop? Join us on a month-to-month basis with no obligation.
Members receive free wifi, access to meeting rooms, a kitchenette, retail space, low-cost printing, plus discounted programming and local coffee on the house!
We share our fully equipped bindery, letterpress shop, type foundry, and zine studio with other individuals and organizations in a variety of ways.
Makerspace membership requires shop orientation, and proper training through our monthly educational programming. We will be launching this in upcoming months.
Meanwhile please reach out regarding tours, demonstrations, student involvement, and other special projects. Our shop is always open to educational endeavors.
RETAIL AND GALLERY
Our retail and gallery space is used by members, partner organizations, and artisans to feature work and sell items that may not fit well in traditional retail environments.
Have artists books, prints, broadsides, zines, or chapbooks to sell? A show you'd like hung? Reach out: let's make it happen.
Our studios are designed for quiet, focused work, and prioritize writers. The studio pod contains just seven spaces for an intimate and communal environment, and each cozy room contains custom built-ins designed to keep you organized.
Studio members have 24/7 access to their studio, plus the main coworking space and all other member-benefits including low cost printing. Work solo or with others depending on your mood.
Studio membership runs on a three-month commitment with an easy monthly payment schedule. A simple application at the start helps us all make sure we're a good fit for each other.
ROOMS & EVENTS
The Bindery is home to a classroom and meeting/reading room, both equipped with white boards and digital projectors. We can also host a variety of larger evening events.
All the above are always available to members at discounted rates, but also to non-members when scheduling allows.
We'll happily host your meeting, class, book launch, poetry slam, or other mission-aligned event. Please reach out for rates and availability.
Our block had zero green-space before our renovation (not even a single tree) so we knocked back a wall to create a welcoming courtyard.
Members are always welcome to work on the patio but we also get excellent foot traffic. Want to vend outside with us or set up an outdoor event? Excellent: we're open to all sorts of options. Please reach out with your idea.
