About This Event

Artist Book Making (A 3 part series) Wednesdays March 13, 20 & 27th

Come repurpose* your old artwork and make creative unique artist books with us!

We will make Explosion books, Infinity Cards and a Flag Book, as well as learn some basic bookbinding techniques.

The magical infinity book is a clever card form that you can open indefinitely, seemingly showing new pages/designs.

Explosion books are small, square books which “explode” into a series of square and triangular pages when you open them. They are also super structural and angular making them a favorite to display.

Invented by Hedi Kyle a flag book is a type of sculptural artist book. It is a great form to display some of your artwork and art papers. Based on a simple accordion book structure vou will learn step-by-step how to create this innovative and stunning book. It is a versatile structure that allows you to attach drawings, photographs, text, fabric, or other materials to the flags in an open creative narrative

Gather up your paper scraps, photos, or cut up an old print to create something new. Each session each student will leave with a new book, and skills to make more advanced book forms.

Students will be asked to provide their own cutting mat, bone folder, exacto knife and with new blade. (if this provides a hardship please reach out to instructor)

*Please bring old artwork which you are ready to revive and repurpose into artist books! Also ephemera/photos/old books, that old wrapping paper collection! or art papers work work
