The book making workshop aims to be exploratory and will encourage participants to make a small book (or small books) of their choice using various papers and techniques.
Participants will be encouraged to prepare the paper for their small book/s through printmaking methods such as linocut, mono print, and drypoint. Participants can also incorporate other artwork and paper resources such as their own drawings, old proofs/prints, and found and resourced papers such as, photos, film, acetate etc.
Bronwyn will demonstrate the following book binding methods: pamphlet, Japanese stab binding, snake eyes pattern, concertina and single page, and then guide each participant through making their book/s.
Although not essential as participants will make prints during the workshop, you are encouraged to bring along anything you think could be used to layer, or incorporate into your book.
Printmaking and binding materials will be provided.
- bringing in some paper and art of your own to develop further
- bringing in some reference to use as inspiration
- keeping it simple and just enjoying the experimentation of mark making, printing by hand and then making a book.
