Ideally suited to beginners and will teach artists the basic book-making techniques of folding, cutting and gluing while they recycle their old drawings, prints and proofs on paper into beautiful artist’s books. During the workshop, participants will be shown inspirational examples of artist’s books. Glenda will provide templates and instructions for several artist’s books as well as giving tips and limits for deciding what form of book best suits the artist’s imagery and paper.
The fundamentals of paper grain, measuring, folding, creasing and pasting paper and board will be taught. Activities will include the preparation of pages for concertina or snake form artist's books, the preparation of simple book cover forms, and attaching covers to the pages of artist’s books. Participants will create one or more books depending on the time available.
