BOOKS & PAPER SUMMER SESSION 6
JULY 30–AUGUST 11, 2023
Thinking in the Language of Books
A book is a place to hold thoughts. It could be a journal waiting to be written in or an artist’s book waiting to be read. This workshop will be about making books for your ideas. We’ll cover a variety of book structures for journaling or artist’s books with a focus on simple folded and sewn structures ranging from pamphlet to long-stitch to hardcover. We’ll also inset text or images onto covers and make simple folded sleeves and cases. As we’re making we’ll talk about how to generate ideas for books using chance operations and other fun exercises. Demonstrations will help students understand how book structures work so they can start experimenting and creating their own. All levels. Books studio.
