Bookbinding for Artists
April 17 - April 21
April 17 – 21, Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm
This intensive, beginning-level workshop is designed to enable artists to use the book format in their work as a means of expanding, preserving and restructuring ideas. It is, at heart, homage to the materials and techniques of bookbinding. Paper reigns supreme in this workshop, and there will be plenty of paper-folding and sewing to justify the use of the word “intensive” to describe our week together. Expect to make a variety of book models as prototypes for future projects — and a box (or two!) to protect and display them. We’ll make single-and multiple-section books displaying decorative sewing patterns, and will also construct a library of accordion-fold models.
