Class Description

In this two-session workshop, students will learn how to create artists’ books with expanded spines to incorporate 3D additions. Learn the fundamentals of artists’ books—paper grain, proper folding and scoring, use of adhesives, adding covers and endpapers—and also how to choose and attach small objects (found or otherwise) to create small books that have added sculptural and textural resonance. We’ll be working with accordion-fold structures that can be made from blank printmaking paper or from prints you’d like to recycle/reuse/repurpose. Workshop students will have the opportunity to make templates for including 3D objects and also go home with a small finished artists’ book. $300.00 + Material Fee: $50.00 *includes 6 hours of open workshop time Limited to 6 Students Instructor bio: Rich Turnbull is an art historian, printmaker and book artist whose work spans various media and incorporates elements of collage and assemblage.
