Hollander's workshop space is located downstairs below their store and contains over 1,500 square feet. Students can access the basement from the stairway inside Hollander's on the main floor.  An old freight elevator is available for handicap access to the space. There is also a downstairs restroom, refrigerator, and microwave for students to use during the workshops. 

In 1994, Hollander’s began offering book and paper arts workshops and expanded to their current location in 2001. The workshop space contains 12 large work tables and has comfortable seating for up to 16 students. There is various traditional bookbinding and printing equipment available for use during workshops. Our bookbinding equipment includes two large board shears, a guillotine cutter, paper cutters, a large backing press, and an assortment of smaller book presses and miscellaneous equipment and tools.

A large etching press sits outside the workshop space, and can be brought in for use during printmaking classes.
