Mixed Media Artist’s Books with Cristina Hajosy
February 5 – 26, 2022
4 Saturdays from 10am to 1pm
Explore the world of artist’s bookmaking with this survey of techniques and applications. From single sheet constructions, accordions, and sewn binds to more complicated Japanese Puncture/Stab binds, Portfolios, Pop-ups and unique hybrids, this course covers all the materials and techniques needed to create personal artist’s books. Students will complete examples of each technique in sizes from 4×6, 5×5 to 3×4 inches, along with an Origami box to house the collection. Focusing on larger-scale, personal projects will continue throughout the month with critique and discussion finishing off each afternoon.
All levels of artists are welcome. The range of techniques we’ll cover will improve and expand the art practices of any artist regardless of media. All tools and materials are supplied.
