The Artist’s Book: Simple Structure, Endless Possibility

This introductory workshop will present the basic structures, tools, and materials of bookbinding. We’ll focus primarily on book forms such as accordion folds, pamphlets, and drum-leaf bindings and how these components can be used as building blocks for more complex applications. There will be daily demonstrations, prompts for inspiring content, discussions, presentations of contemporary innovations based on these foundations, and time for experimentation. Students will leave with a solid grasp of the basics, many samples, and lots of ideas as jumping-off points for developing their own expressive work. All levels. Code F02B
