$271 - $491 TOTAL WORKSHOP COST
($190 tuition + $10 supply fee + $71 - $291 lodging & meals package of choice)

This workshop focuses on combining and sewing multiple books and creating various book containers related to book arts. For beginner and advanced students alike, we will investigate the uses of constructing envelopes, pocket and boxes, as well as eco printing and surface possibilities. The technique of bookbinding will be fused with the concept of memory, observation, and ecological image generation. Knowledge of these forms will allow for a lot of future  spontaneous art processes and visual ecology investigations, as well as play.

Students will learn to sew multiple types of historically important bindings and will also create a guided devotional book in the style of 17th and 18th century psalm books. French herringbone tapes structures will be combined with Coptic binding styles to create a unique art book. Advanced students will have the option to create a dos a dos. The class will discuss the symbolism of devotional books and memory gathering, and case in the book in a unique way, as well as create/workshop how to make experimental clasps for books. We will make a variation on a Japanese butterfly book, as well as box forms that combine Kirigami and Origami processes.

A $10 materials fee will be collected by the instructor at the beginning of the class. 

Class Level: Beginner/Novice, Multi-Level
