Asheville Bookworks Asheville Bookworks is a community resource for print and book arts located in West Asheville, North Carolina.Laurie Corral, founder and director, was inspired by an exhibit of artists books from the Women's Studio Workshop in 1996 while working at the Hickory Museum of Art and envisioned a place where artists working in print and book arts could support shared studio space, foster the exchange of knowledge and raise awareness of book art and print in Western NC.Since then, Asheville BookWorks has become a place where classes and workshops are held regularly year-round, studio rental is available, special guests including Vamp and Tramp, Drive-By Press and Booklyn have made visits, an artist residency program has been developed, artist talks are scheduled, an exhibition gallery has been designed and built, and the BookWorks Co-op has been initiated.Interns and Volunteers are a valuable asset, contributing a great deal to the overall success of Asheville BookWorks. Working under the guidance of resident artists and staff, Interns and Volunteers assist with a variety of things ranging from special projects in letterpress, hand papermaking or bookbinding, to marketing, clerical support and general maintenance.BookWorks offers unpaid Internships enabling students to gain first-hand experience in their area of interest. Students are responsible for making appropriate arrangements with their schools to receive credit for internships.Both Interns and Volunteers are eligible to participate in a labor exchange, earning hours toward 1/2 tuition or reduced rate studio rental. Hours are flexible, however, a minimum of 3 hours per week is advisable. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
