In this introductory book art workshop, we will explore a range of simple folded and bound structures, including single-sheet structures and a 4-pocket folded structure with a sewn signature. As we consider the relationship between subject and form, we will experiment with visual and written content. Participants will complete the workshop with several models and one or more finished book structures.

Please bring writing paper (a journal or notebook), pencil or pen, additional papers (optional), any image-making materials (all optional), such as ink, paint, brushes, stencil paper, soft linoleum to carve, Gelli plates, etc., and (optional) an apron, gloves.

Provided: paper for all structures, bone folders, glue, thread, needles, cutting mats, metal rulers, small utility knives, carving tools for soft linoleum, and brayers.
