Experimental Book Arts - Find it. Bind it.

August 1-2-3
All Levels
$275 + Materials Fee

Got a locket you want to turn into a book? How about that bacon press you aren’t using anymore? Do you see book potential in everything you touch? This is the class for you.

Students are asked to bring found objects they would like to make into artists’ books. The first day of the workshop will be spent reviewing appropriate binding styles and techniques for designing and fabricating an artist book. The following days, each student will receive an object in class to make into a book, as well as turning an object of their own into a work of art. No previous binding experience necessary, although an adventurous spirit is mandatory.
