Enter the world of sculptural artist’s books. This workshop will concentrate on Lotus Books. These fascinating book structures can challenge and expand notion of bookbinding into paper arts, sculpture, photo displays, holiday decorations, jewelry and more.
We’ll cover basic adhesive skills, using both glues and adhesive transfer methods, use of bone folder in folding, scoring, and adhesive control, and all the basics kills needed for book making. There’s plenty of time for discussion about personal project ideas, hybrid possibilities, and conceptual potentials while getting it done. Cristina’s stash of hand-printed marbled and paste papers will inspire many great combinations of colors and textures. Beads, buttons, ribbons and threads will be available to complete the projects. All materials are provided along with technique handouts. All skill levels are welcome!
We have limited the class size to 8 for your safety and comfort and to provide more availability of the instructor to each student. You will work at individual desks, spaced well apart in our spacious and airy Plummer Studio. All students must agree to comply with LexArt safety protocols. Bring your own mask. We will provide you with a Face Shield for added protection, which is yours to keep.
Class Fee: $110
Materials fee $25 (payable to instructor at the first class)
