Making Artists Books – a taster session
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
A taster session with Patricia Henry and Stroud Artists Books
Participants will be shown three types of blank book structures to make: one stitched, one single page and one folded and will be provided with a starter pack to reproduce these at home.
Participants who also attend the printmaking workshop, or who have done so in the past, can bring pre-printed work with them which can be made or used in a book form.
What is an Artist’s book?
The term ‘book’ can be taken loosely. This can mean taking a familiar structure of the book, using a variety of processes to format leaves, folding, cutting, stitching, gluing or a combination of these; or it might mean deconstructing the concept of the book altogether thus making it more conceptual than truly representative. This also means that some book-structures are sculptural in nature. They are usually produced as limited editions, or as a unique artwork.
Please bring a ruler, a scalpel and a cutting mat if you have one.
Paper, needles and thread, covering sheets, information sheets and a starter pack to take home will all be provided.
This event will take place in the marquee on the village green
Tickets go on sale to the general public through the website at 10am on Good Friday (April 10th 2020) and to Benefactors of the festival 2 weeks earlier.
