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 basic skills needed for bookmaking. 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!
