Product Details

In this workshop participants will be exploring a range of book making and stitched-binding techniques to create a number of artist books. We will combine components to form collaged and layered covers, both soft and hard bound. We will explore the concept of hinging a hard cover book, adding multiple folded pages to concertina books and developing a range of stitching methods to form decorative visible patterns.

Students are encouraged to bring paper-based memorabilia (maps, timetables, menus, speciality papers, mementos of trips/holidays, etc.) to add both exterior and interior content and/or pages to their books. Pages don’t just have to be blank! Consider creating themed books incorporating materials important to yourself.

This is an experimental workshop where the construction of a variety of book types will be taught and participants will then have the opportunity to personalise and adapt their pieces through a range of visual, textural and design effects. It is suitable for those new to creative book making or those with some experience wishing to widen their skills and have a bit of fun!

Materials fee of $20 payable to the Tutor.
