Book Arts at North Country Studio Workshops 2018
Omigod omigod omigod omigod.
Hedi Kyle is coming to Vermont! Yep. That Hedi Kyle. This is pretty much the best thing ever.
From January 23-28, 2018, she’ll be teaching at North Country Studio Workshops (NCSW) in Bennington, VT. Every other year, NCSW offers five-day intensive workshops for those seeking a collaborative and creative learning experience. The event is held at Bennington College.
I took a workshop with Hedi at the Garage Annex School back in 2005. It.was.amazing. That was pre-blog, so I have no pictures. Sadness.
Seriously, I would take any workshop with her, no matter what the subject. If she were teaching how to alphabetize North Atlantic sea life, I’d be there. A deep study of the health benefits of liver and onions? I’m there. And I hate liver.
Here’s the description of her workshop Paper Structures:
Learn to fold a generous variety of books, folders, and boxes – mostly from one large piece of paper. The structures you create will not remain blank, in other words, bare of content. With techniques such as stenciling, rubbing, and blotter printing, you will apply patterns, text, and images to pages, pockets and spines.
Registration opens June 1, 2017. But don’t sign up until after I do.
