This experimental workshop is like a mini retreat, where students who have taken some book arts classes in the past can explore taking their artist books to a new level. Enjoy the creative environment of working with other artists – it’s like a book arts play date!
In this workshop, I’ll share several of my one-of-a-kind artist books and provide some insights into how I created them. I will share my skills and strategies with students in order to coach students to conceive of and create their own one-of-a-kind art book. The workshop will include a discussion of the relationship between a book’s structure and content.
The use of both standard and unconventional materials will be demonstrated, along with creative ways to apply them to the book arts. A wide range of tools and materials will be available for you to try, including collage, carved block stamps, image transfer, Dremel, and paper cutting. Different binding techniques will also be explored.
In this workshop, each participant will leave class with an accordion book and technique sample cards. This workshop is best-suited to someone with previous book arts experience
