Be part of a book arts community that comes together for learning,
sharing, and networking, including a 5-day conference every other year.
FOCUS ON BOOK ARTS is a five-day conference of book and paper arts workshops held biennially on the verdant campus of Pacific University in charming Forest Grove, Oregon, just west of Portland. Every odd-numbered year, we present workshops taught by renowned, professional instructors in the fields of bookbinding, printing, decorative papers, paper making, book art and more.
The conference attracts over 200 book and paper artists from around the world. We offer five days of workshops, along with a Trade Show, Artists’ Shop, Faculty-Staff Exhibition, and several evening receptions. With the option of on-campus housing, FOBA is an excellent opportunity for community, networking, and learning new skills.
