This is an introductory workshop, covering basic techniques needed to delve further into the fascinating world of artists’ books’.
Many famous artists have made works in book format, such as David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Gilbert and George. Artists’ books are a fascinating and growing art form that is gaining in popularity with many exhibitions devoted to them.
In this workshop we will be covering essential basic techniques, such as
- choosing papers and covers
- correct measuring and cutting
- simple bindings
During the workshop we will be creating A5 pamphlet booklets, Turkish map folds and accordion booklets with exchangeable covers. We will discuss various other styles, methods and practical issues involved in making artists’ books.
