Books & Paper B Summer Session 4

Books & Paper Summer Session 4
July 4-15, 2021
Frank Hamrick
Handmade Paper and Artist Books

In this workshop, we’ll make rag paper from your old cotton and linen clothes and incorporate it into various book structures including hardcover pamphlet, accordion, longstitch, case bound, Japanese, and Coptic bindings. Advanced students can tackle more advanced forms, including z-fold and dos-a-dos. We’ll talk about editing and sequencing content, and how size, material, and structure choices can support subject matter. We’ll have options for placing imagery or text into our books digitally or manually. Our time will be divided between the books and papermaking studios. All levels.

Professor at Louisiana Tech University; other teaching: University of Georgia Cortona Italy Program, Art Institute of Boston Mentor Program; collections: Art Institute of Chicago, Amon Carter Museum (TX), Ogden Museum (New Orleans).
