"It is exciting and challenging to take what you are good at already, such as drawing, painting or printmaking in a completely new direction.  Add some techniques in hand bookbinding or papermaking, and you can blow your own creative socks off and have a lot of fun." Jean Kropper

  

 HAND PAPER-MAKING FOR ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS 

FEBRUARY 23  

Course Fee $95

Time: 10AM - 4.30PM

 

We all use paper every day, yet take it for granted.  Come dip your hands in the vat and have a go. We will cover recycling art papers and office papers, adding colour, inclusions, pulp painting, shaped deckles, and my favorite,
embossing textures. Choices for sizing, pulps, and drying techniques will be discussed. Learn to handle a mold and deckle, build a post, smooth a blanket and crank a paper press.

ONE SHEET WONDERS: An inventive Book Form For Artists and Designers 

MAY 18  

Cost: $95

10AM - 4.30PM

Printmakers, artists, designers and photographers alike can use this binding to create a distinctive book form from one large artwork or photograph. These books give a dramatic reveal. They start out folded up into a 20cm book, unfold into an
intriguing sculptural form, and then unfold further to one large image. They can be laid flat to display the complete image, or can be designed with images on each ‘page’ or surface. We will cover adhesives, measuring, folding and cutting paper
accurately, techniques for wrapping hard covers, content ideas and three different one sheet book forms.

You will walk away with a few completed book forms. You are welcome to bring a few artworks, a selection of drawing papers or colored papers, such as Canson, for your books.  Supplies list is given on enrollment.
